Education, Qualifications and Skills

Engagement in learning impacts on a range of outcomes and research has confirmed that those people who are well educated and achieve high level qualifications generally enjoy better health, live longer, are happier and have greater economic prosperity. They are also better able to adapt to changes in economic circumstances. 

There is a strong link between education and health outcomes, with poor educational attainment being associated with poorer health outcomes and lower life expectancy, poor mental wellbeing and lower levels of disability-free health.

Raising aspirations and achievement is a priority for all partner organisations.
