Apprenticeships are playing an increasingly important role in Tees Valley industry. They support young people and adults to secure a lifetime of sustained skilled employment and meet the needs of our growing and rapidly changing economy.

Apprenticeships can change lives. We know 90% of apprentices go on to a job or further education and they offer a ladder of opportunity for people of all ages. They also boost businesses and make a profound difference to the economic stability and productivity of our area. High-quality apprenticeships, alongside reformed college-based technical education courses, are a central pillar in delivering the skills needed to create economic growth in Tees Valley and to promote social mobility to our residents.
