Durham Community Business College – Prepares for Studio Schools

A BUSINESS college is set to become the North-East’s first Studio School, offering work and life skills training to hundreds of teenagers.

The Durham Federation school has secured £650,000 in Government funding to transform unused buildings at its Durham Community Business College, in Ushaw Moor, near Durham, into one of only a handful of Studio Schools being piloted across the country.

The concept, pioneered by the Studio Schools Trust based on research from New York and Australia, involves creating small ‘schools within schools’, where up to 300 youngsters aged 14 to 19 get class- and work-based training to prepare them for employment.
