Our fantastic young people have one of the lowest aspiration rates in the region.
We need more focus on the business we have in Boston building better connections with schools and our college so our young people can see the jobs they can aspire to.
This would include revenue support for set projects that allow businesses into schools, perhaps expanding the concept of Primary Engineer to much broader subject base, not just STEM areas, and work with teachers to show the broader life skills young people need to be successful in the workplace.
This would create a golden thread from primary, secondary, college and workplace.
This would also create the skills for where we know there will be a shortage in coming years – allowing us to retain employers and attract inward investment.
