THE NORTH. MADE OF PIONEERS.
THE TIME TO INVEST IS NOW
Building a Northern Powerhouse is about boosting the local economy by investing in skills, innovation, transport and culture, as well as devolving significant powers and budgets to directly elected mayors to ensure decisions in the North are made by the North. We are backing business growth right across the North, and giving our great cities the power and resources they need to reach their huge untapped potential.
Through the largest investment in research and development in 40 years, we are creating more opportunities to support science and innovation in the North. This will help to drive productivity and the region’s future economic growth.
We are driving forward the biggest investment in the North for a generation and are committed to improving everyday journeys, developing skills and rolling out superfast broadband to deliver the improvements that the region needs for the long term.
The Northern Powerhouse is recognised across the world as an established, globally competitive and thriving economic area with ambition for growth.
Our vision is to provide world-class education, training and care for everyone, whatever their background. We are currently making progress in the Northern Powerhouse region, with National Colleges, a Northern Sponsor Fund to establish multi-academy trusts and twenty T Level providers among other examples.
The success of the Northern Powerhouse will be defined by the people who see its potential, so we're increasing connections to help attract and retain the best talent and ensure sustainable growth for future generations.
