First graduates for Teesside’s High Tide

[ October 21, 2013   //   ]

The first group of young people graduated from the High Tide Foundation’s Summer Scheme on Teesside at a ceremony at Ryehills School in Redcar on 14 October. The scheme was launched to help young people leaving school gain an understanding of life in the work place, as well as the variety of career choices available in port related businesses on Teesside.

The two-week long scheme saw each young person spend time with two different companies including Agility Logistics, Bond Dickinson, Casper Shipping, Cory Shipping, David Fox Transport, Denholm Wilhelmsen, PD Ports, Sabic and Tata Steel.

A particular highlight was the opportunity to experience life on a working container ship with local based shipping line, Containerships on an 11-day round trip to St Petersburg via Rotterdam, Riga and Helsinki.
