The Sponsor is committed to leading a process of educational transformation which will support and contribute to the regeneration of the local area. The Sponsor recognises the urgent need to retain young people in education and training post-16 and to respond to the national government agenda by reducing the number of NEETs (not in education, employment and training) in Droylsden and improving access to higher education generally.
