Have you ever wondered what successful business leaders do? What was their career journey? What inspired them?

This opportunity will connect you with some impressive Tees Valley business leaders where you can discover more about what motivates them and what they measure as success. You will take part in tasks to help you understand how a business is built. You may even come out with a successful business idea of your own!

From idea generation to finance and marketing, you will learn all about what goes into building a business that is sustainable for the future!

While each session is sector-focussed, our one-day insight virtual placements offer insightful interactions and an overview of industries in our region. This structured and employability-led initiative is delivered entirely live and online, helping you to explore the world of work directly from the classroom. There’s a focus on discovering sectors and raising aspirations, with an emphasis on the varied roles in each industry.

Covering a range of different sectors including Business, Media, Law, Finance, Engineering, Maritime and Automotive, High Tide offers real-life insight into industries across the Tees Valley. Since 2012, our programmes have provided unique and life-enriching experiences that help young people engage with employers, increase understanding and improve skills.
