Employer Funding Initiatives

To discuss any available funding, TTE have a dedicated team of advisors on-hand to support and guide your business.

TEES VALLEY COMBINED AUTHORITY – SUPPORT FOR EMPLOYERS GRANT

The Tees Valley Mayor has launched a new drive to accelerate the number of high quality apprenticeships, following a successful scheme which has helped support over 1,000 apprentices in the last year.  The new scheme will be funded by Tees Valley Combined Authority (TVCA).

The initiative will in particular support SMEs who create apprenticeships in sectors facing high demand from employers, identified in the Tees Valley Strategic Economic Plan, including:

  • Advanced Manufacturing;
  • Process, chemicals and energy;
  • Logistics;
  • Health and biologics;
  • Digital and creative;
  • Business and professional services.

The initiative will also offer support to smaller companies taking on apprentices aged 19-24, often for the first time.  There will also be a drive to establish high quality, higher and degree level apprenticeships in the priority sectors.

Tees Valley Combined Authority supports employers in the Tees Valley local authority areas of Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar & Cleveland and Stockton-on-Tees to create new Apprenticeship opportunities.   This support is designed to assist employers who are committed to creating a new apprenticeship or progressing an existing apprentice onto a higher level of apprenticeship. Apprentices must start their learning between 1st August 2017 and 31st July 2018. The Apprenticeship training must be provided by a training provider who is approved by the Education Skills Funding Agency (ESFA).  TTE are an approved provider and are on the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP).
