Assistant Principal Jacky Owen said: "We are absolutely thrilled to be able to announce this exciting expansion plan to our T Level offer. This will bring the list of T Level options at East Durham College to 14 from September 2023.
"T Levels are exciting new level 3 qualifications for school leavers.
"They have been developed with vital input from employers, across the relevant sectors, and provide a minimum of 9-weeks working with an employer on an industry placement giving students a fantastic opportunity to leave college work-ready or to progress onto further study at university if they wish."
