Unique in its make-up, the CPCA region is defined by three distinct economies with differing sector specialisms and therefore differing social and economic skills needs. The region faces many challenges. Broadly speaking, Greater Cambridge have the highest levels of skills and the best educational outcomes; Greater Peterborough and the surrounding area experiences lower levels of employment and greater economic inactivity and the Fens has lower labour market performance, related to the accessibility of both jobs and training. It is imperative that, to achieve inclusive growth, we concentrate our efforts on closing the skills gaps, and overcoming the barriers and challenges to progression by developing bespoke life-long learning for all ages through a tailored approach.
