We need to spread opportunity to unleash the potential of Burnley and Padiham. And that’s why I'm working to turn our borough into a North West leader in technology education.
- Our community became great on cutting edge technology. We need to restore this focus. And make Burnley an Educational Improvement Zone.
- Burnley College has taken leaps forward by becoming part of a new Institute of Technology. One of only 12 nationally.
- UCLan is expanding higher education in the borough, offering thousands more places to feed in skills to the new National Cyber Force in the Ribble Valley.
