The Employment and Skills team are there to make sure individuals, employers and policy makers in Tees Valley have access to labour market and skills intelligence.
Evidence tells us that our adult workforce will need transferable skills to respond to a rapidly changing labour market; to make progress and remain in sustainable work; to boost the productivity of the Tees Valley economy and to attract investment to the area. It also tells us that we need to give our young people the right skills and information to make well informed career choices so that they can meet the needs of our current and future economy.
By understanding the key challenges and opportunities, the Tees Valley Combined Authority Skills Team work with employers, learning and skills providers and other agencies, to ensure that the provision on offer in Tees Valley gives individuals the skills they need to meet the current and future needs of businesses and to enjoy successful and satisfying careers
