Durham County Council - Work experience

Durham Education Business Partnership arranges placements on behalf of schools for students who are in their final two years of compulsory education, those studying diplomas and young apprenticeships. They also arrange placements for some post-16 students.

Approximately 6,000 placements are arranged each year for students from secondary and special schools across the county.

The majority of schools choose to send the students out in Year 10, the placement dates differ from school to school and fit around the curriculum. Block placements will be for one week in the summer term and one or two weeks in the autumn or spring terms.

There is also an extended programme of work experience for some students which can be one or two days per week for a full term.

The Education Business Partnership works closely with around 4,000 local companies in County Durham to provide these work experience placements.
