NE1 Can

Raising Aspiration and Ambition.

A programme of engagement between businesses, schools and Further Education providers across our city and wider region in line with Gatsby Career Benchmarks.

Facilitating over forty events per annum, NE1 Can works with cross-sector businesses to showcase the wide range of career choices available within the region helping to broaden horizons, raise aspiration, encourage ambition and give insight into what the real world of work is like.
