Employability courses are designed to support an individual successfully gaining a job, progressing in a chosen field, preparing the individual for further study and supporting the development of techniques required for successful independent living.
East Durham Partnership offers a range of employability skills programmes at different levels which address individual learner needs. Courses can last from 3 days to 3 months, depending upon the status and previous learning of the clients. Learners are referred by Job Centre Plus, Work programmes, Careers service, Probation Service and a range of other training agencies. Individuals can also self refer. Following successful employability programmes learners may be offered employment with the social enterprise where they can undertake NVQs in a range of topics.
