Duration: 5 Days

Closing Date: 04/02/2022

Age: 14+

Have you ever wondered how the world around us was built? How do we create electricity and how are our roads built?

This interactive programme will connect you with Jacobs Engineering who have been operating for 74 years in sectors from Nuclear power to Civil Engineering. You will learn about what opportunities are available and work alongside real employees.

You will take part in practical tasks to help you understand 8 different areas of engineering, from nuclear engineering with NASA projects to designing a factory from the ground up!

While each session is sector-focussed, our in-depth five-day virtual placements offer insightful interactions and a deep dive into industries in our region. This structured and engineering-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.
