Northern Powerhouse Partner Announcement

6th September 2019

We are pleased to announce that we have now become a member of the government’s Northern Powerhouse Partnership Programme.

We will be working alongside a network of partners helping to build a Northern Powerhouse that invests in skills, innovation, transport and culture in the North.

Mary Ahern, Chief Executive here 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.
