STAND NUMBER: 9080
We are the biggest apprenticeship provider in the North East region and one of the biggest in the country, actively supporting the government`s priority of apprenticeship growth.
Derwentside College has been at the forefront of the national Apprenticeship Reforms and we`ve taken full advantage of this to successfully expand our business.
Whilst the majority of our learners are based in the North East and Tees Valley, we also deliver extensively across Yorkshire and Humberside, the East Midlands, the North West and we now deliver in Greater London to service one of our national employer chains.
These examples, we believe, illustrate that our strategy to focus on employability and to expand our services to employers continues to be extremely successful and it is very pleasing to see the excellent reputation we have gained as a result.
Our well-established partnerships with employers continue to flourish, we have worked in close partnership with County Durham and Darlington Foundation NHS Trust for four years now. To date we have trained over 450 apprentices in a diverse range of areas, with many more to come.
Building on this success, we now work with a growing number of NHS Trusts providing bespoke training in a diverse range of specialist areas.
Our long-standing partnership with the Countrywide and Maria Mallaband Care Group, one of the UK`s leading independent care home providers, has developed and grown such that we now work extensively with them throughout many parts of the country, again offering training in a diverse range of areas.
