The Productivity Commission is based on a model for radical reform of the whole skills system that will reduce unemployment, raise skills levels and make a significant contribution to raising productivity. The Commission aims to establish the true extent of the productivity challenge in the West Midlands by looking to:

  • Understand the component causes of the productivity challenge and the inter-relationships between them
  • Make recommendations as to how these individual causes can be addressed
  • Ensure appropriate plans are developed for the implementation of these recommendations and monitoring systems exist to review their effectiveness.
