Linking Business with Education
26th March 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
The Tees Valley Careers Hub has been established with funding from the Careers and Enterprise Company to provide resources and support for schools and colleges in the Tees Valley.
The Careers Hub is part of a wider programme of investment by the Tees Valley Combined Authority to build on existing good practice and drive up the quality of careers advice. This will include providing young people with meaningful encounters with employers, work experience opportunities, and impartial advice on the many career opportunities available in the North East.
The North East England Chamber of Commerce supports this work as part of our campaign to build a Working North East. We have many examples of members working together to support careers advice and would like to grow this activity across the entire region.
This Linking Business with Education event will bring together leaders from education and business to network and share best practice.
