EAST Durham College has teamed up with renewable energy company Infinis to operate a new Employability Fund that could be worth more than £1.5m.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the parties was signed yesterday by Baroness Sally Morgan, a non-executive director of Infinis, and college principal Suzanne Duncan. Community benefit cash from a proposed five-turbine wind farm in the area will be placed in a fund open to those aged 16 to 65 to help them access skills training.
