East Durham College Overview Image

Our priority is to give our students the edge when it comes to future employment opportunities. 1000s of our former students have quickly found employment, apprenticeships, progressed to the next level of study and university or even set up their own successful businesses.

We equip people with the skills and knowledge required by today’s employers and have fantastic links with employers to offer our students excellent work placements as part of their full time programmes.


East Durham College was last inspected by Ofsted in February 2014. We were delighted they recognised our ambitious vision which aims to raise the aspirations of students, our sharp focus on students’ attainment of high grades and that the College supports students’ progression on to further study or employment.

Positive Progression

Last year 86% of our leavers moved on to positive destinations which included employment (including apprenticeships), further study or higher education by November 2015.

Huge Choice Of Course

With over 150 full time programmes in more than 40 subject areas, plus 23 A-level options, there really is something for everyone. From catering to applied science, engineering to animal care, our study programmes represent progression routes into hundreds of different jobs.
