Welcome to the South Tees Institute of Learning, Research and Innovation

The South Tees Institute of Learning, Research and Innovation brings together all of the trusts learning, research and training development functions into a virtual hub. It is devoted to the promotion of each area by forming an integrated and multi- disciplinary approach, with academic, clinical and front line staff to lead learning, research and innovation. The hub creates an environment of shared responsibility and accountability and space for innovation to occur.
