College and NHS Partnerships


The College’s excellent and well-established partnership with County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust continues to go from strength to strength.  To date 350 apprentices have been trained in a diverse range of areas, and over 100 brand new jobs have been created for young people aged 16-24. 

As a result of this success, this has led to the growth of further NHS Trust Partnerships with the College now working with further NHS Foundation Trusts across the region. This will see many more existing staff upskilling through apprenticeships as well as the creation of new jobs.
