The North of Tyne apprenticeship programme is part of NTCA’s ambition for Good Work in the region, which we’re promoting with the Good Work Pledge.

We want to see more younger people taking an apprenticeship. The opportunity to ‘earn and learn’ on an apprenticeship after leaving school is a great way to start on a successful career, gain valuable workplace skills and build financial independence.
The myglobalbridge digital platform is now available as part of a two-year Apprenticeship Hub pilot in the region. The platform was rolled out to secondary/middle schools and six form colleges across the North of Tyne during autumn term 2021.
The secure platform empowers students to showcase their talents to educational institutions and potential employers, to create connections and assist with recruitment of talent through workplace opportunities such as apprenticeships. It will connect young people in the North of Tyne with opportunities for apprenticeships and workplace training.
Schools and employers who are interested in the myglobalbridge platform please contact Globalbridge.
As we start recovering from the economic impact of the pandemic, the Combined Authority wants to further explore how we can support our businesses increase the numbers of apprentices from traditionally under-represented communities, such as those with additional learning needs.
This will create a more inclusive economy, in which all our residents can access their potential and access the opportunities they need.
