Inspire future talent with North East Ambition

North East Ambition are helping businesses in the North East get involved with local primary and secondary schools, as well as colleges, to get students the careers education that they need.

What is North East Ambition?

North East Ambition aims to, ‘support all North East schools and colleges to achieve the Good Career Guidance benchmarks by 2024’. These benchmarks include a stable careers programme, learning from career and labour market information, addressing the needs of each pupil, linking curriculum learning to careers, encounters with employers and employees, experiences of workplaces, encounters with further and higher education, and personal guidance.

North East Ambition hopes that by meeting all of these goals, they are not only creating clearer and more targeted career pathways for young people, but also building lasting relationships between education providers and businesses. These relationships will help businesses to be involved with the education of their future employees, and ensure that students are training in the skills that they will need to gain employment. 

Why should businesses get involved with North East Ambition?

By partnering with schools and colleges in the area, businesses can engage with the community that they are serving. Working with a business which cares about their local area, and the people that live there, makes a difference for your clients and customers. By working within your community, you can set your organisation apart from your competitors. 

However, working with schools and colleges is about more than appealing to your clients. Organisations which develop relationships with students through primary, secondary or college education are more likely to attract those students when they enter employment. By helping to educate, train and encourage young people, businesses can build relationships with the next generation of employees.

How can businesses get involved?

North East Ambition are currently working with over 200 Education institutions, and have a number of different ways that organisations can work with and inspire the next generation of employees and employers:

  • Enterprise Advisors
    Employers can join the Enterprise Advisor Network to volunteer their time and help students to understand the different ways that they can gain employment within your industry

  • Education Engagement Partners
    Help bridge the gap between education and the workplace by attending careers fairs and business breakfasts, and speak to students about the career opportunities that are available

  • Apprenticeships
    A qualification, from Level 2 (GCSE) to Level 7 (Master’s degree) that lasts between a year and five years, and allow those who leave education to train on the job at your business.

  • T-Levels
    T-Levels are technical qualifications, where students attend training in person with employers alongside their regular classroom teaching. Employers can establish placements within their workplace for students to attend.

  • School Governors
    Employees and employers can become school governors, to help plan the direction of the school, oversee school spending and connect with headteachers and leadership teams.

  • Traineeships
    Traineeships are the bridge between education, and an apprenticeship or employment. They can be from 6 weeks to a year log, and are a high quality work placement with an employer.

  • Work Experience
    North East Ambition works with Employers to help develop and design a meaningful work experience programme, to give students a real experience of working for a business.

  • Curriculum-linked projects
    Employers or individuals work with local teachers to link their curriculum content with the workplace; help students to develop relevant skills and understand how their lesson relates to the world of work.

The Transcendit Way

Transcendit understand that when you choose to work with us, whether we're taking care of your IT, app or web development, you're trusting us with part of your business. So whether we're looking after your computers, phone systems or servers we always do things 'the Transcendit way'.

The whole of our team adhere to the same values, beliefs and policies - the principles that were written when Transcendit first formed in 2000. Whether you come to us for cloud services or recovery backup you can be confident that you'll always receive the same excellent service.

The Transcendit way outlines how we do business; following the same straightforward principles with every client and customer, regardless of how big or small they may be.

That means we get to know you and your business. We offer you a friendly, professional and efficient service, and we'll always be honest with you.
We understand that not everybody speaks fluent IT, so we try to explain things in a way that is simple and clear. We always spend as much time as is necessary explaining things to you.
If you need to talk to us about something, no matter how insignificant, we are only ever a phone call away – and we’re never too busy to make you a cup of tea and have a sit down with you in person.
We understand how frustrating it can be when things are late. When we schedule an appointment with you, we are there when you’re expecting us. If something prevents us from getting there, we always call you in advance to let you know.
Sometimes things can go wrong, but we never lie to you or try to cover something up. If things go askew we tell you what’s happened and how we plan to prevent it affecting your business.
We want you to continuously benefit from working with us. We regularly discuss your business and make suggestions for improving systems and processes wherever we can – but we never try to push you into a purchase.
When we quote a fixed price, that's always the amount we charge – you won’t find any nasty surprises on a bill from us. If you are paying by time and materials, we inform you if our approximations could change.
We understand the importance of privacy for your business and your customers. We respect the confidentiality of your data, and we will never pass on your information to third parties.
We appreciate it when you take the time to give us feedback. A system called CustomerSure records our client's responses, so you can trust that our reviews are from real people.
