Education consultancy Alps has become a member of the government’s Northern Powerhouse Partnership Programme.

The Huddersfield-based company becomes the latest to join the network of partners building a Northern Powerhouse that invests in skills, innovation, transport and culture. Mary Ahern, Chief Executive at Alps said:
“As a company whose philosophy is all about unlocking the potential of our young people and investing in their skills, we recognise the values of the Northern Powerhouse and are proud to support them in their development of the North.”

Minister for the Northern Powerhouse, the Rt Hon Jake Berry MP said:
“Investing in young people so they can develop their skills and unlock their full potential is at the heart of our vision for a prosperous Northern Powerhouse, so I’m delighted to welcome the education consultancy Alps to our expanding network of Northern Powerhouse Partners.

“I look forward to their contribution as we work together to level up our regions and ensure people have the opportunity to secure high-quality jobs.”

The Northern Powerhouse is government’s vision for a super-connected, globally competitive northern economy with a flourishing private sector, a highly-skilled population, and world-renowned civic and business leadership.

The Northern Powerhouse Partners Programme is an important part of creating the Northern Powerhouse.

Government is building a network of partners who all believe strongly in the economic potential of the North and support the need for a combined effort by government and business to realise that potential. Over 300 businesses and organisations have signed up to the partner programme.
