Durham County Council

The Durham County Council is a regional acting public organisation which comprises all kinds of services for the citizens. The partner in our project is the department of education. There are 250 towns and villages included and around 1.000 educational initiatives and institutions. At Durham it can be found one of the lowest rate of basic skills in United Kingdom and to improve these skills is one of the priorities of the department.

 Main emphasis in the next years’ activities should be given to:

  • Increasing participation of men in adult education and further education
  • Social inclusion (migrants, women back to work etc.)
  • Development of a quality-assurance-system of educational courses and institutions
  • Integration of eduplan as self-explanatory instrument to gain quantitative data for quality assurance
