Who better to tell you about the quality of the service we offer employers than employers themselves?

Willow Burn Hospice - Apprentice Support Willow Burn Logo

The process of recruiting was one of ease, with the college pre-vetting before any time was given by Willow Burn. The college's assistance in supporting the hospice is essential.

Our apprentice has integrated into the team extremely well, offering so many skills which we never expected to have within the team.

We would not hesitate in recommending East Durham College when someone is looking for an apprentice.

The Expanded Metal Company

Expanded Metal Company LogoOur apprentice, Holly, has settled in very well and, from day one, has took to her new role well. She is keen to learn and has picked up our processes really quickly.

Holly has been a great fit too, working well with the internal sales team and wider team. She has been able to engage with staff at all levels with ease.

The Expanded Metal Company has bucked the recent trend, taking on several new apprentices. Holly, along with our MD Philip Astley, was selected to speak with Victoria Derbyshire on the BBC news channel about their thoughts on the local economy, where investment is needed to help young people find work and to help the town recover and grow. She also recently appeared on our LinkedIn social media and made it into the local paper, The Hartlepool Mail, following her success since joining us. Holly is a real asset to the company and we'd highly recommend taking on apprentices into any business.
