What can we offer DurhamWorks young people?

Our Back on Track Next Steps programme aims to engage young people who have become disillusioned with education or who are unemployed.

Through a range of activities we increase self-esteem and improve life and employment skills, matching our training to individual learners’ ambitions and needs. Learners can stay on the programme for as long as they need to develop their confidence and skills.

The course offers various levels of support from CV writing sessions to accessing literacy and numeracy. Further qualifications are available if learners wish to extend their time on the course.

This rolling programme can be accessed at any time throughout the course, with sessions running two-three days a week. Interactive courses consist of classroom and practical activities, which aim to build skills and qualities for further personal and professional development.
