Four students embarked with Mrs Blackburn on the High Tide Foundation/PD Ports Port to Port logistics programme on Monday.

What a fantastic opportunity for our young people! #RaisingAspirations #EmployerEngagement

More details
The Port to Port Experience allows students from around the region will visit companies in and around Teesport before embarking on an overseas trip to a European port to learn about operations and industrial links between the ports. This four-day programme consists of business and port related site visits, company presentations and river trips designed to provide invaluable insight into industry career opportunities while also helping personal skills development and confidence building.

The programme runs once a year and as places are very limited students are selected from across member schools via an application process.

Student feedback: “My experience with high tide has gave me amazing opportunities and I have met very influential people who have helped me to gain confidence as well as skills I will take with me for the rest of my life. I am grateful I have got to do the port to port visit and work experience; because of high tide, I now know my career aims and know what I need to do to get there. Some of my best memories are because of high tide and I would recommend it to all young people.”
