Would you like to help young people in our region to have a better future?
Did you know that if a young person receives four or more meaningful engagements with employers throughout their time at school, they are 86% less likely to be unemployed and, on average, earn 22% more?
The Tees Valley Mayor and Tees Valley Combined Authority are calling on businesses to get involved and support TeesValleyCareers.com. This new initiative is a £3million programme that will see every school and college in the area have access to 1,000 businesses to directly inform them of job opportunities and career paths and to support school career events such as career fairs, talks, mock interviews, site visits, work experience to name but a few.
These encounters make a huge difference to young peoples knowledge and aspirations, improve their employability skills and ultimately help us to retain our talent for the future economic growth we all anticipate. This is your chance to shape your future workforce and commitment from our business community is vital to its success.
You may already be engaging with schools or maybe its something youve been thinking about but dont know where to start. Get in touch with our TeesValleyCareers.com Co-ordinators today at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how we can support you to help our young people in a way that fits around your business.
