We would like to invite you to an event to learn more about our emerging plans to develop an Education Challenge across the North of Tyne area (Newcastle, North Tyneside and Northumberland).
Hopefully you will be aware of the ‘minded to’ deal that the three local authorities have signed with government for the devolution of powers and funding, predominantly relating to economic development, skills, transport and infrastructure. As part of the deal, it was also agreed that the authorities and key partners would develop proposals for investment, powers, and initiatives relating to education quality and outcomes.
Over the past few months, we have engaged with a number of education leaders and key partners from business, health and social care to identify shared priorities and develop proposals that we can submit to government as part of a North of Tyne Education Challenge.
We would very much welcome your attendance on Thursday 5th July, 1:30-4:00pm at the Langdale Centre, Howdon to contribute your views and help further shape our proposals.
If you are able to attend, please confirm via email to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
We look forward to seeing you there.
