Another of Hertfordshires strengths is the high skill and educational standards of its workforce. Youll find that the performance of Hertfordshires schools is consistently well above the UK national average and almost 40% of the workforce have degree level or equivalent qualifications a figure also much higher than the UK average.
These high standards are achieved through the excellent education and training provided by local schools, colleges and the University as well as many Hertfordshire companies.
There is also a strong county partnership working closely with the business community to ensure that training and education programmes are in place to meet future skills needs.
Hertfordshire is close to the University of Cambridge, Oxford and London as well as having the new University of Hertfordshire. All make a first-class contribution to the countys fine educational standards and the professional skills of the workforce.
