Western Basingstoke Higher Education Capacity Study Published

The Western Basingstoke Higher Education (HE) Capacity Study is part of a wider Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) project concerned with ensuring that the education and skills infrastructure supports the borough’s ambitions for the local economy and the people of Basingstoke.

 

This Study provides an opportunity, as part of the education and skills infrastructure strand for the DCLG project in Manydown and Western Basingstoke to build on the borough’s many strengths, creating a template for higher level technical education and skills. The study had two main objectives; firstly to explore, with evidence, current and future requirements for higher level skills in the Basingstoke economy, to ensure a supply of skills to fuel and help maximise expected growth in that economy and secondly to identify options for the delivery of those higher level skills.
