Cardiff’s 10-Year Education, Training & Potential Plan | #YourShout

Posted on:   Posted by:

Fancy having your say on Cardiff’s adventurous, ambitious 10-year plan to become the most liveable city in Europe?

Cardiff Council has a giant 10-year to-do list to make us the best city in Europe in which to live – and we, at theSprout, have an opportunity for young people to have their say on these exciting plans.

Why might you want to? This massive plan affects everyone in Cardiff, so it simply shouldn’t – and couldn’t – be made without the people of Cardiff.

The Plan

The plan is called the What Matters Strategy and it involves lots of people working together to improve aspects of our everyday lives, through the Cardiff Partnership.

There are seven aims overall, covering things like health, economy and environment. You can read more about it here.

The Opportunity

TheSprout has already collected dozens of questions for the Chief Superintendent of South Wales Police (her answers are here) and the Chair of Cardiff & Vale University Health Board (her answers are soon to be published on theSprout) and we had the amazing opportunity for young people to interview these big wigs. Thanks for everyone’s great input so far!

We are now inviting young Cardiffians’ questions and thoughts around the Strategy’s aim of “People in Cardiff achieve their full potential”.

The Partnership says, “one of our main strategies for that is to offer as many ways to improve your knowledge and skills as we can.”

For this reason, we have an interview with Mike James, Principal of Cardiff and Vale College and we want to hear about what matters to you. Get thinking about education, training, skills, etc!
