Young enterprise programme taken up in schools across east Durham

A NEW programme aimed at giving young people more skills to better equip them for work will be taken up in schools across East Durham.

The Young Enterprise programme will see more than 2,000 students and volunteers learning new skills that will hopefully help them to succeed in their chosen career path.

All schools which take part will become Centres of Excellence, a nationally-recognised status.

East Durham Rural Corridor AAP provided £7,000 for the project with the schools allocating £3,200 and Young Enterprise and Livin funding £9,500 each.
