My Chance, My Future Project 

My Chance, My Future by Bishop Auckland College is a project through the European Structural and Investment fund (ESIF) and is a community led local development (CLLD).

The project aims to support unemployed people closer to the labour market and ultimately back in to work. It will help people explore local history and heritage to discover what has changed in terms of employability opportunities. The project will include trips to local heritage sites including The Auckland Castle and the Mining Art gallery mixed with classroom-based learning, work taster sessions and volunteering opportunities.
