At Growth Flag, we believe in the transformational impact education and skills development has on growth and innovation. In today’s rapidly evolving business landscape, the key to securing and enhancing growth lies in the hands of individuals who are equipped with the right skills, and working alongside the higher education sector will play a key role in driving economic prosperity.

We are at the forefront of innovation, providing a dynamic data platform that predicts and identifies growth signals before they happen. This powerful data can be harnessed by universities, colleges and training providers across the UK in:

  • Research and bids - support academic research by providing a compelling, evidence-based and clear understanding of place as part of projects and bids.
  • Strategy - influence place-based policy and strategy.
  • Business engagement - develop business engagement based on propensity for growth in order to prioritise resources and enhance the economic impact for local ecosystems.
  • Curriculum development - develop a curriculum designed to fit conditions in the real economy and high growth industries, playing to regional and local strengths to support with retaining talent locally.
  • Apprenticeships and employability – find and connect apprentices and students with high-growth business for work placements and internships. 
  • Student learning - help the next generation of leaders and professionals gain firsthand experience and understanding of local economies and business needs.

We are proud to have already collaborated with prestigious educational institutions such as the University of Salford, Aston University and City-REDI at the University of Birmingham, where our data platform is actively deployed.

Dr Francine Morris, Associate Dean for Enterprise and Engagement at Salford Business School, rightly emphasises the importance of strong data in strategic decision making, delivery of programs, and the importance of empowering the next generation, a perspective we wholeheartedly share.

“By getting data into the classroom and supporting students to understand and use the data in innovative ways they can learn from us, but we can also learn from the students and identify areas of opportunity. We also look forward to welcoming students to work alongside our team in a variety of areas, sharing our knowledge and expertise to support the next generation as they begin their careers.”

In addition, with the Growth Flag platform, education providers have a greater understanding of their local economy, along with data and insight to develop policies and strategies that support sectors with the highest growth potential by tailoring curriculum and targeting businesses with opportunities based on their needs.

Growth Flag is committed to driving change and fostering growth through data-driven approaches, providing the necessary tools and resources to empower individuals, institutions, and businesses to thrive in an ever-changing economic landscape.

We invite you to join us in this exciting journey and together we can unlock the potential of data and education, driving success and prosperity across the UK.
