Governing the skills agenda: insights from the Sheffield city-region

David Etherington, Martin Russell Jones

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Skills are currently riding high on the political agenda and major changes are underway with respect to regulation and governance. We explore developments taking place in the Sheffield city-region, particularly the ‘skills strategy for Sheffield’ and its governance. We suggest that city-regions reinforce, and have the potential to increase, rather than resolve, the uneven development of labour markets and interlinked socio-spatial inequalities.
