Event description
Skills for Growth: help shape future training provision in the Tees Valley

About this event

We need the help of SMEs from the Chemical and Process sector in our region to help shape and inform future training needs of companies just like yours. The sector accounts for an estimated 5,500 jobs in 2020, and a further 2,110 jobs across the supply chain, with an estimated GVA of £411m rising to 551m across the supply chain and impact on local incomes. Therefore, we invite you to a special symposium, specific to Chemical and Process sector, to give you the chance to share your thoughts about any skills gaps you may have now or anticipate to have in the future which may impact your growth, productivity or competitiveness.

About Skills for Growth

The Skills for Growth project* is a joint initiative from Teesside University Business School and Tees Valley Combined Authority (TVCA) to identify skills needs and access employee training to help business growth. Working in partnership with TVCA, the Teesside University team will carry out research into the Tees Valley's key priority sectors, to identify skill needs and provide intelligence to the Skills Development Officers who are delivering direct support to businesses. The result of this approach will provide Tees Valley educational providers with long-term sector skills roadmaps to ensure supply meets demand.

Businesses operating across the Tees Valley area will have access to funded support from a team of experts to help them identify any skills gaps their company has now or may have in the future. The Skills Development Officers will work with businesses to understand their training needs and take them through the training and support available locally, before helping them tap into specialist support to upskill their workforce.

If you have any questions about any of the symposiums, email Anil Kumar at
