How can North East Ambition help my business?

We understand that it is a challenging time for businesses and the North East Ambition Programme can support your business by:

• Providing access to a talent pipeline of young people who are the workforce of tomorrow

• Helping to train and retain your current workforce

• Promoting brand awareness and the great work your company is involved in

• Offering access to other initiatives in the region that may benefit the business.

• Offering specific workshops, events and local connections to other businesses and services.
