Education, Skills and Employment

The future of the North lies in our own hands, and closing the education and skills gap between the North and London will begin to narrow the productivity gap. Continued prosperity relies on a workforce equipped with a high-quality education and the essential skills to succeed.

EvoNorth is hosting some exceptional speakers to discuss how we educate the Northern Powerhouse and address the skills gap. 

Speakers include:

  • Richard Crane, Head of Education & Skills, Durham County Council

  • David Willett, Commercial Director, The Open University

  • Annette Bramley, Director, N8 Research

  • Raksha Pattni, Director of School Partnerships (North), Ambition Institute

  • Stephen Gorard, Professor of Education and Public Policy, and Fellow of the Wolfson Research Institute at Durham University

  • Vicky Beer, Regional Schools Commissioner, Lancashire and West Yorkshire, Department for Education

Dr Annette Bramley, Director, N8 Research

"How can we build the kind of society we want in the Northern Powerhouse during and after the Fourth Industrial Revolution?"

Included with your ticket
