Information for Year 10


Tees Valley Careers

TeesValleyCareers.com has been entirely redeveloped in response to the coronavirus pandemic to create a new look and feel that is more accessible for students and their parents, offering the best advice possible to help them find a new job or training course.

The £3million UK-first initiative, spearheaded and launched by Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen has taken another step to provide youngsters with information and opportunities helping them on the path to a successful career.

The scheme targets every school and college in the Tees Valley, providing advice and support to about 100,000 young people. It aims to give children aged 11-18 seven direct and meaningful employer engagements, with 885 firms in the region signed up to the scheme. It comes off the back of The Mayor’s £1million Emergency Apprenticeship Scheme to fund the salaries of up to 100 apprentices as well as a recent announcement of more than £1million to education providers to support careers education across the region.

If you are a young person, parent, school or business who would like more information on careers advice or the wider initiative, visit TeesValleyCareers.com

Introduction to FE Level Courses

Askham Bryan College

Applicant Event Tuesday 14th – Thursday 16th July

This event is to build upon our virtual open event last month and now introduce students to our curriculum and campus teams. From the reception and grounds staff, through to their course manager and learning support team – the idea is for students to get a feel for their course and the environment of where they will be studying.

The event will take place via Zoom webinars which means students/parents & guardians/teachers do not need to book and instead can find all the links they need for the event via our What’s On page.

You’ll see we start with an introduction to our campuses on day 1 and then followed by our course areas on days 2 & 3.

Before the sessions we would encourage students to visit our Find out More page where they can find our course guides, course and support overview presentations, and some virtual tour footage.
