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!

A bit about us: FIRST Face to Face ( are committed to delivering services that relate directly to young people and startup businesses. These services are: enterprise experiences and confidence building; networking events and projects for start-up and growing businesses; employability support and work placements for 16-25s; and bespoke market research into youth engagement and enterprise.

North Tyneside Learning Trust ( is a collaboration of schools working in partnership with employers, universities and colleges to improve education and life chances for all children and young people. The Trust works to strengthen pathways to further and higher education and employment for children and young people and to support the transformation of North Tyneside and the wider region into a high wage, high skill economy characterised by enterprise, ambition and success.
