Welcome to Learning & Skills Darlington Borough Council. We are an Ofsted rated grade 2 provider offering a wide range of learning opportunities for all ages from children within our Family Learning provision, to young people embarking on Study Programme, Diplomas, Traineeships and Apprenticeships, to adults who want to develop their careers, have a love for learning or are coming back to learning after many years.
We are based at the Coleridge Centre in Skerne Park (just above Skerne Park Academy) and we provide courses both here and across Darlington. We are a small organisation and we pride ourselves in offering you a unique and friendly service, including 1:1 guidance on your next steps in learning or employment once you have completed a course with us. We are here to help provide Darlington’s community with the learning you want and we positively welcome any feedback you may have about the type of courses you would like to see in Darlington.
Learning & Skills Aim
We aim to provide a sustainable, high quality learning and skills offer for all residents and employers of Darlington, particularly for vulnerable members of the community. We aim to provide high quality learning, teaching and assessment to all our learners, and a service in which learners are motivated to successfully complete their qualifications. Our ambition is for our learners to continue on to successful employment or further learning.
Learning & Skills courses are part funded by the European Social Fund. We were rated 'Good' by Ofsted in April 2016.
