North East

We offer a range of services to help people across the North East progress their careers.

Working across Newcastle, Gateshead, County Durham, North Tyneside, South Tyneside, Northumberland and Sunderland, our teams work in partnership with local employers and the North East Local Enterprise Partnership to provide relevant training linked to the local labour market.

Sectors like manufacturing, digital, healthcare energy are all experiencing growth in the region while there are many jobs in warehousing and construction too.

As Britain’s leading provider of skills training, we know what works to help you have a successful career. We have great links with local and national employers like Amazon, Tesco, Amberstone, Pinpoint, McQueens Dairies, Meridian, Smyths Toys, and Blossom Home Care,  – and after undertaking training with us, you could even land a guaranteed interview with them.

We’ve supported more than half a million people with skills and training – you could be next.

Our programmes are usually free, as long as you meet the eligibility criteria. And taking part won’t affect any benefits you might be receiving.

Whether you’re unemployed looking for work, looking to progress up the career ladder, or a young person right at the start of their career, our team can help you.

Check out the range of support available to you across the region.
