Government’s Industrial Strategy

Government has now published its Industrial Strategy Green Paper setting out both the strategy to address longterm challenges to the UK economy and inviting repsonses to a formal consultation. There are ten ‘pillars’ underpinning the strategy and the green paper sets out the proposed approach and some early actions which government is committed to take. Proposals include

• £170 million of new capital funding to establish prestigious Institutes of Technology

• Plans to use the successful free school model to expand the provision of specialist maths education across the country

• Action to tackle shortages of STEM skills

• Testing ambitious new approaches to encourage lifelong learning

The consultation closes on 17 April.
