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

Jones, Martin and Etherington, David (2009) Governing the skills agenda: insights from the Sheffield city-region. Local Economy, 24 (1) . pp. 68-79. ISSN 0269-0942 [Article] (doi:10.1080/02690940802645521)


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.
