Are you a digital business looking to engage with schools?


Are you a digital business looking for rewarding CSR opportunities and to engage with schools? 

23% of businesses in the North East state that the biggest challenge they face to growth is struggling to recruit people with the right skills.

Employers report that young people are leaving education unprepared for the world of work which is contributing to the North-East skills gap and a high youth unemployment rate.

We need YOU to help inspire the next generation!

FIRST Face to Face and North Tyneside Learning Trust are launching an exciting new inter-school competition which will partner North Tyneside schools with one successful, innovative business from the digital sector.

We are looking to work with an employer that is passionate about supporting young people’s development & keeping talent in the North East!
