Ahead Partnership

Ahead Partnership is committed to a vision for growth within the city of Leeds and the wider City Region that is inclusive and shared by all communities. In support of the Leeds Inclusive Growth Strategy, we pledge the following:
• Through our Make the Grade programme, we will continue to put young people at the heart of skills education, as we recognise that they will drive the future economic success of the city
• We will increase the engagement of businesses in schools across the city through a suite of interactive activities to enable every young person, regardless of their background, to be better prepared for and informed about the world of work
• We will develop our offer at all levels – primary, secondary, FE and HE
• We will prioritise bringing opportunities and support to the most disadvantaged young people, in particular those that lack access to networks and information, to drive greater confidence, aspirations and ambition
• We will involve more corporate partners in designing educational and skills activities so that teachers, parents and young people are better informed about the skills and qualifications that are valued
• Our work will reflect changes in the labour market and provide clear and immediate information from employers
• We will deepen our relationships and partnerships across the city and region
• We will sharpen our focus on the digital sector to help generate a future digital talent pipeline for employers across the region
