Our Careers Programme - Info for Employers

East Durham College is continuing to seek new ways to involve employers in our Careers Programme to help support our young people with their career decisions and we need your help!

There are several ways in which you can engage with the Careers programme at East Durham College.

Careers Talks

We are always looking for people to come in to give talks to our students about their careers, their journey along the way and tell us more about their place of work and industry. 

Work Experience Placements

We offer work experience placements as part of study programmes. In addition, we are seeking employers to work with us to offer industry placements in some occupational areas to assist with the introduction of T Levels.

Please see the Work Experience page for more details.


If you would like to speak to our Apprenticeships team about taking on an apprentice, please contact them on 0191 518 5508.
