The Durham Education Group


If English is not your first language Durham Education Group is offering General English tuition which helps improve your spoken, written and listening English communication skills for work or study purposes.

This course is not exam based – we concentrate mainly on everyday language skills. You will be awarded a college certificate on completion of the course.

Alternatively, you could improve your IELTS score by taking the Durham Education Group’s IELTS programme which leads to a nationally recognised qualification.

IELTS is designed to assess the language ability of candidates who want to study or work where English is the language of communication. 

IELTS is recognised by over 6,000 organisations worldwide, including universities, employers, professional bodies, immigration authorities and other government agencies. For more details on IELTS please visit
