Together we can inspire the future of Tees Valley.

For Businesses

Together we can inspire the future of Tees Valley. 

We are changing the future for young people across Tees Valley. Every business across our region have one thing in common, we all need good people. Fresh talent with bundles of enthusiasm, equipped with the right level of skills disrupt the norm within business, they spark innovation and push the boundaries which drives progress and positive change.

From accountancy and automotive to media and manufacturing, our business members help deliver programmes that inspire, influence and attract their future workforce. To help inspire every young person across Tees Valley we need your help. Join over 130 businesses of all sizes and sectors that are already inspiring our future. To find out more about our FREE membership get in touch.

The way to engage and inspire young people is to connect them with people in business, to get them out there and amongst industry and meeting the people that make things happen. Over the last five years we have seen our membership grow to over 150 with businesses that span all sectors and all sizes. We appreciate all levels of support, no matter how great or small – whether it’s speaking at a career assembly or leading on one of our new work experience programmes.

It’s not about writing a cheque, it’s about attitude, culture, collaboration and involvement. Skills development and retention is a key challenge facing many sectors, locally, regionally and nationally. The programmes we deliver at High Tide not only provide real life work experience they also offer genuinely unique and life-changing opportunities for young people.
