Our new Learning Theme looks at how we can get the best jobs and skills benefits from regeneration. Government has defined regeneration as, “a set of activities that reverse economic, social and physical decline in areas where market forces will not do this without support from the government”. Whilst the focus of this Learning Theme is on the link between regeneration, jobs and skills, there are clear lessons for the ways in which local areas can benefit from wider economic development activities.
The Learning Theme will produce up-to-date research reviews, a review of good practice and a workshop. Through this you’ll be able to share ideas, develop recommendations, and network. We are also keen to hear your experiences.
So, if you have an interest in better linking regeneration, jobs and skills, then please do take this opportunity to get involved, have your say and influence policy in the region. Just complete the subscription form on the right. I hope you will be joining us for what promises to be a stimulating and timely discussion.
The Learning Theme workshop will be held at the Sandy Park Conference Centre, Exeter, on Tuesday, 23 March 2010.
