Skills and education
This section covers education and training outcomes for residents of Hackney and the City of London, highlighting the impact on health and wellbeing, key inequalities, and providing examples of effective local practice.
There are strong links between education, health and quality of life. Research has shown that positive wellbeing in pupils can lead to improved academic progression and engagement in school. In turn, a good education significantly improves a child’s later life chances. Higher educational achievement provides access to better employment prospects and higher wages, and is associated with healthier lifestyles and better health outcomes (both in terms of physical and mental wellbeing). While the causal relationships between education and health are complex to untangle, it is likely that by improving education for all, social inequalities in health will reduce.
Below you can find a number of documents identifying the local population needs. Please note that this will be updated as and when the new information becomes available.
