    Introducing The Workplaces Project

    DurhamWorks has launched The Workplaces Project – a new initiative for County Durham students.

    The project aims to provide opportunities for Year 10 and Year 12 students in County Durham, to gain an insight into the world of work and to find out more about the skills and characteristics that employers value. Through bespoke visits to workplaces and/or school visits we aim to demonstrate to the students personal and employer standards and expectations to equip the students with some vital employability skills.

    The team are aiming to help build the confidence and belief of the students so that they can identify, and subsequently, successfully apply for roles they might not otherwise have known were available or achievable.

    The groups who are going to benefit from these visits, are relatively small (12 max) and will be staffed efficiently and effectively. The employers who accept the invitation to work alongside us to successfully execute the project will be helping to improve the understanding and knowledge of young people in the communities in which they operate.

    To find out more or to arrange an initial face to face visit, please contact Amanda Leslie on 07769243053 or amanda.leslie@durham.gov.uk.
