Annual performance spotlights
Connect outcome - Education and learning
Inspiring learners, transforming learning, strengthening partnerships
What communities told us:
- Improve health and wellbeing to enable children and families to flourish.
- Provide a rich and stimulating curriculum that helps raise standards in literacy and numeracy.
- Support children and young people to develop their skills for learning, life and work.
- Adult learning should be affordable and accessible to older adults. This is good for mental health and physical health and making friendships.
- Digital training and accessible learning with opportunities to gain skills are important for adults and young people alike.
- Life skills teaching is required – money management, mortgages and use of credit. The skills that should be promoted are IT/Digital skills as well as interpersonal.
- Create an environment for communities to fall down, learn and get back up and keep going
What success will look like:
- Improved attainment in literacy and numeracy
- Improved attendance
- Improved positive destinations for our young people
