East Durham College run a number of courses at the Gateshead site including the Diploma in Animal Care at Level 1 and 2, Diplomas in Land Based Operations at Entry Level 2 and 3, and also Level 1 programme in Countryside Skills.

East Durham College programme leader for Animal Care, Ian Hall, is glad to see the partnership with Bill Quay Farm continue and grow since it successful launch in 2013.

Ian said: “It’s great to be able to run these courses up in Gateshead for prospective students in Tyneside who would like to take a more rural-based course but can’t make it all the way to our Houghall Campus in Durham.

“This way it’s more convenient for students to come and train at Bill Quay Farm and pick up top quality teaching and qualifications just as they’d get over at Houghall.

“We’re looking forward to meeting any prospective students ahead of the start of another great year of courses in Gateshead starting this September.”
