Tees Valley Careers is the region’s Careers Hub and has a dedicated careers team which supports your school/college to implement high quality careers guidance, to help you to make more informed decisions around your future choices.
Our role is to work with the Careers Leader in your school/college and Tees Valley employers to ensure you are aware of the opportunities in Tees Valley.
Launched by the Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen, 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 direct and meaningful employer engagements. This direct contact will help you to make key decisions regarding your future career pathway and help build your 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 who 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.
