A Project Funded By
DurhamWorks is a partnership project between Durham County Council and 9 organisations working together to support young people who are not in education, employment or training.
We can give you information, support and guidance that will help you find opportunities near to you. We check through hundreds of job and apprenticeship opportunities and can find out what courses and training are available for you too.
I have really enjoyed the experience and feel that I have more confidence and future.
I feel like the DurhamWorks programme is about young people. They genuinely care about getting you a job that you enjoy.
Working with DurhamWorks gave me the confidence boost I needed to just go for it and it’s turned out to be a great match for me and my health condition.
I wasn’t in a good place, but now I have an idea of what I want to do in the future.
The DurhamWorks funded apprenticeship is great for me to learn in a practical way.
