Teesworks Skills Academy

Teesworks Skills Academy has been established to help give the local people of the Tees Valley the best skills possible to take advantage of the new jobs and opportunities that are being created for workers at the Teesworks site.



Operating as a one-stop-shop, the academy will link investors, contractors, end users, employment hubs, skills providers, jobseekers and apprentices to create a world-class workforce for the future, equipped with the expertise businesses at the site will need to grow and succeed.

The skills academy forms a major part of the future of Teesworks, formerly known as the South Tees Development Corporation site, the UK’s largest industrial zone which aims to create thousands of high-quality jobs centred around advanced manufacturing, innovation and clean growth.

Teesworks successfully secured Education Training Collective as the delivery partner, leading a consortium comprising Darlington College, Hartlepool College of Further Education (HCFE), Middlesbrough College including TTE, Redcar and Cleveland College (RCC), Stockton Riverside College (SRC) including NETA Training Group, Learning Curve Group, Teesside University and Redcar and Cleveland Borough Councils Training and Employment Hubs, to develop a skills plan to coordinate training and recruitment across the region and work with organisations to match employers with potential employees for the site.
