In fact, we’d go as far to say it’s one of our major responsibilities to raise awareness of the opportunities in our region and nurture the next generation of creative talent.
Moving with the tide
While the impacts of COVID-19 have proved challenging for us all, education and learning organisations have faced particular obstacles and uncertainty.
Through a series of programmes, High Tide Foundation connects business and education to help raise aspirations for young people in the Tees Valley. However given the implications of the pandemic, their usual range of hands-on lessons and site tours have had to be put on hold.
To combat this, they’ve evolved their business and delivery model to offer a unique online resource library covering career information, industry insights and behind the scenes videos. The Learning Hub features real life stories from corporate partners and business members, and it’s hoped that eventually courses will also be accessible online.
