Abstract:

Improving education outcomes in a city can have a positive impact on its economic growth. People continuing into higher education are more likely to have better employment prospects and earn high wages. Education can also be a powerful tool to improve social mobility and open up opportunities for people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Cities can ensure their education offer is relevant to the needs of both its students and employers by promoting education initiatives and programmesproviding financial help to students and working closely with providers and employers.
