Tees Valley Careers is a Careers Hub that has a dedicated careers team to support your child’s school or college implement high quality careers guidance, helping them to make more informed decisions around their future choices.
Our role is to work with the Careers Leader in your child’s school or college as well as Tees Valley employers to ensure they are aware of the opportunities in Tees Valley.
Launched by the Tees Valley Mayor, Tees Valley Careers’ aim is to have more than 1,000 businesses engage with young people to directly inform them of job opportunities and career information with the aim of each child receiving seven meaningful employer engagements. This direct contact will help them make key decisions regarding their future career pathway and help build confidence and knowledge of the labour market. This direct employer engagement could also directly lead to a future employment offer.
Research shows that young people that receive four or more meaningful engagements with employers between the ages of 11-16 years are 86% less likely to be unemployed or not in education, employment and training and, on average, earn 22% more.
