Have you ever wondered how finance works? How do you actually buy a house or raise money to build a business?

This interactive programme will connect you with impressive local finance professionals where you can discover more about how the world of finance works and your part in it.

You will take part in practical and thought-provoking tasks to help you understand finance and accounting. From building equity to insuring and funding you will go through it all! This programme provides a deep dive into the industry, live and interactive sessions and immersive practical tasks. Delivered in partnership with Active Financial and Teesside University.

While each session is sector-focussed, our in-depth five-day virtual placements offer insightful interactions and a deep dive into industries in our region. This structured and finance-led initiative is delivered entirely live and online, helping you to explore the world of work directly from the classroom. There’s a focus on discovering sectors and raising aspirations, with an emphasis on the varied roles in each industry.

Covering a range of different sectors including Business, Media, Law, Finance, Engineering, Maritime and Automotive, High Tide offers real-life insight into industries across the Tees Valley.
