Service summary

East Durham College

Our Mission is to be a centre of learning excellence, providing an outstanding experience for all students, generating economic and social prosperity for the region we proudly serve.

The College is home to a genuine and supportive community of students and staff - we believe you won’t find a more supportive and friendlier college.

And that support leads to some great results. A high proportion of our students progress successfully into further or higher education, apprenticeships or employment. Check out our former student profiles page to see a sample of their amazing achievements or our Student Success Stories on our YouTube channel.

Students at East Durham College also develop their confidence, self-esteem and work-related skills - developing good employability skills and enhance their future opportunities.

We also have a strong focus on helping students to make a positive contribution to their communities through the community project aspect of our exciting tutorial programme. The work of our students and our Students’ Union also helps a wide range of charities and community action projects. In fact, our 14-16 Engage provision was shortlisted for the 2020 Tes FE Awards in the Contribution to the Local Community Award category.

We have a key focus on supporting students in their journey on to employment or further forms of education and training, building upon the positive and life-changing experience of studying at East Durham College.
