Our Programmes

Our programmes help open young people’s eyes and minds to Tees Valley’s diverse career opportunities providing real life work experience which increases understanding, improves skills, raises confidence, and builds aspirations.

They are designed, with our business members, to 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.

All our programmes are FREE to young people from schools and colleges who are education members. If you are a school in Teesside and you’re interested in becoming a member and applying for any of our programmes then please get in touch with the High Tide team 01642 233 597 or on email at info@hightidefoundation.co.uk.
