A new website has been launched to help unemployed people in County Durham find jobs and apprenticeship opportunities.
The mobile careers microsite includes information on the latest job opportunities at Durham County Council and apprenticeship vacancies.
The site has been launched by Bishop Auckland College as part of a range of activities marking National Careers Week to help students access job opportunities and find out more about apprenticeships available
in the local area.
They also included the publication of a new careers newsletter distributed around the college and a visit to Teesdale School in Barnard Castle in partnership with Durham Education Business Partnership where Year 10 and 11 pupils heard about apprenticeships. Stephanie Nattrass, the college’s Head of Client Services, said: “We work closely with other training organisations and the local job centres on an ongoing basis, but National Careers Week gave our careers staff a high profile platform to launch several new ideas to support students with relevant information about jobs in the area and further training.”
The new website is open to all to use and will be regularly updated with new employment and apprenticeship opportunities. It can be found at http://tinyurl.com/6ta4692 Bishop Auckland College has more than 1,000 full time students aged between 14 to 19, 6,000 adult students, over 250 Higher Education students and 300 apprentices.
