Port to Port Experience

The Port to Port programme is a unique and life changing learning and personal development opportunity for students to visit companies in and around Teesport before embarking on an overseas trip to a European port.


Length: 4 days
Frequency: 1 x per year
Number of Students: 12
Sector: Logistics
Delivered by: P&O Ferries, PD Ports, Casper Shipping, Huntsman, TATA.


Our Port to Port Experience allows students from around the region will visit companies in and around Teesport before embarking on an overseas trip to a European port to learn about operations and industrial links between the ports. This four-day programme consists of business and port related site visits, company presentations and river trips designed to provide invaluable insight into industry career opportunities while also helping personal skills development and confidence building.

The programme runs once a year and as places are very limited students are selected from across our member school via an application process.

“My experience with high tide has gave me amazing opportunities and I have met very influential people who have helped me to gain confidence as well as skills I will take with me for the rest of my life. I am grateful I have got to do the port to port visit and work experience; because of high tide, I now know my career aims and know what I need to do to get there. Some of my best memories are because of high tide and I would recommend it to all young people.”
