Tees Valley Pathways & Routeways Employment Initiative Programmes

The Tees Valley Pathways and Routeways Programmes are managed by the Council and delivered by a consortium of partners across Tees Valley including Hartlepool Jobs & Skills.


The programmes are for young people aged 15 – 29 who are unemployed and/or not in education, employment or training and reside in the Tees Valley. We have supported over 8,000 individuals and have an excellent success rate in helping young people move into Employment, Education, Apprenticeships and Further Training.
