The Doncaster Education and Skills Commission has been set up by ‘Team Doncaster’ the local strategic partnership of public services, business and the voluntary and community sector.
It is an independent Commission that has been brought in to advise Team Doncaster on how to better align education, skills and employment. It will hear evidence from key stakeholders, including schools, education and training providers, businesses, children and parents before putting forward its proposals.
The aims of the review are to help raise attainment levels and ensure that young people have the right skills needed to secure new jobs that are being created in the borough.
The Commission comprises of:
- Dr Ann Limb (Chair)
- Professor Sir Tim Brighouse (Vice Chair)
- Professor Keri Facer
- Amali de Alwis
- Nigel Brewster
The new independent website for the Education and Skills Commission is now live on their WordPress site, and includes details of the work of the Commission and upcoming events.
