DC Works – Employment Support

Darlington College’s employability team, DC Works offer a unique adult learning provision to support learners into employment, further education, professional development or future learning. Offering quality delivery and industry relationships, our diverse and learner centred courses are bespoke to support your journey.

Across the Tees Valley, we look to inspire our learners, building trust to raise aspirations and unlock your lifelong potential.

DC Works continue to deliver courses following the government’s  recent announcement on restrictions but will continue to do so online until further notice – thank you.
