Education Engagement Partners

We support employers to engage with education to help bridge the gap between education and the world of work.

Through North East Ambition, the North East Combined Authority supports employers to engage with education to help bridge the gap between education and the world of work.

Through our Education Engagement Partners Network we can support you to engage with local schools and colleges to support your business aims and objectives. Whether you want to give back to the local community, access future talent pipeline or raise awareness of your industry.
