East Durham College

Is a leading further education college in the North East. We offer many courses to enhance your career prospects and offer a wide range of subjects designed to meet the needs of post 16 learners.

Thanks to a £36 million redevelopment, East Durham College is now of the most modern purpose-built facilities in the area which our students, staff and the local public are extremely proud of.

The college provides a huge range of college courses for adults, many of which are set up for part time learning so you can fit your studies around your life.In this fast-changing world, we understand that people need to be flexible to meet the demands of the modern workplace. People no longer stay in one job for their whole lives, they need to constantly update their skill set and many people choose to learn new skills to enrich their lives.

East Durham offers a huge variety of courses for adult learners; from brushing up on basic skills such as maths and English through our skills for life programme, to beginning a completely new career in almost any industry. We also offer some great evening and weekend classes to provide adults with the opportunity to try something new.

Located on the edge of bustling Durham City Centre, the College’s Houghall Campus has an excellent reputation for land based studies and we run many environmental and horticulture courses. The college and its courses are highly respected within the industry and provides students with first class experience and tuition. This is due to the excellent facilities including a pinetum, arboretum, garden centre and farm, all set amongst beautiful grounds and countryside. On top of that, our lecturers have a genuine passion for the outdoors. If you are considering a course at the college you can be assured that you have come to the right place.

There are many different reasons for returning to education, and at East Durham College we understand that adult learners have different needs to school-leavers. We have a dedicated team that look after the adult college and who ensure you get the support to help you achieve your goals.
