We are an industry led charity which delivers life changing career experiences. We open young people’s eyes and minds to Tees Valley’s diverse career opportunities. We provide real life work experience which increases understanding, improves skills, raises confidence, and builds aspirations.
Through our unique industry programmes we deliver ‘meaningful’ career experiences focusing on getting young people, aged 11-19, out of the classroom into industry across a range of sectors from automotive to animation and from media to manufacturing.
This means seeing, feeling, and experiencing the world of work first hand and meeting the people who deliver and lead it. The way to engage and inspire young people is to connect them with business people, get them out there and amongst industry and meet the people that make things happen.
Tees Valley is on the up. Recruitment, skills development and retention is a key challenge facing many companies across all sectors. It couldn’t’ be higher on the agenda in government, local authorities and in board rooms.
Young talent is needed. Young talent with bundles of enthusiasm, equipped with the right level of skills and the willingness to graft. Tees Valley needs to be ready to deliver. Our series of school and industry programmes are designed around local business needs, aligned with TVCA’s sector skills strategy and deliver ‘meaningful’ career experiences required by the national careers framework the Gatsby Benchmarks.
Our programmes not only build work-based skills and awareness, they have a key focus on life skills, changing attitudes, developing networks and building ambitions.
