Allow yourself sufficient time prior to your training course to find a space as there is limited parking available at the centre.

Alternative parking can be found on Dryden Road, Eastwood Gardens and Salkeld Road. Please do not park on Shotley Gardens or Evistones Road as parking tickets will be issued.

Directions by bus

Bus information can be sourced by contacting Traveline North East on
0870 200 22 33 between 7am and 9pm, or by visiting the Traveline North East website.


Most of our training rooms are on the first floor. Stairs have to be used to access these rooms as there is no lift facility within the building. Please contact Workforce Development immediately if this impacts on you.

On arrival

Please report to reception to check the information screen to confirm your room number and location as these are subject to change. The receptionist will provide you with a door access code if required.


Tea, coffee and water will be available on your training course.  
Dryden Cafe is open 11am - 2pm term time only
