When you come to DurhamWorks the help you receive is tailored exactly to your needs. Guided by us at every step of the way, you will work through these stages: 

You'll meet your own friendly and qualified advisor. They will tell you all about DurhamWorks and how we can help you.

We will work with you to identify your goals and ambitions, identify your strengths and see where we can support you to help you progress. This can include identifying support with your maths and English if this is something you would like to improve.

We will then work with you to develop an action plan that is sure to set you on the road to success. We will give you the tools to create a quality CV and continue to amend it to build on your success.

We'll help you develop new skills or update the ones you have. You may require training such as updating your maths and English skills, or practical courses specific to your chosen field. Whatever your needs and interests, your advisor will be able to help you investigate fully.

We'll give you all the help you need along the way and will even support you once you're in a job – if you still need us!

If you need a hand paying for travel, equipment, clothing or childcare we'll help you find that support. Employers may also be eligible for financial help in funding your role.

We strive to tackle any other problems stopping you from taking part in DurhamWorks. We are aware sometimes that life can get difficult and challenges may come our way. We won’t judge you and will help whatever your circumstances.

Finally comes the best bit; your new position in work, training or education. But your relationship with DurhamWorks doesn’t end there. We can support you for as long as required, including helping you to access further learning or training as you progress.
