About Our Organisation

Exam centre and learning provider

We are an approved training provider and private exam centre, supporting hundreds of home educated, distance learning and adult learners internationally. We facilitate GCSE, iGCSE, AS and A Level, BTEC & Functional Skills via CAIE, AQA, Edexcel, OCR, WJEC (Eduqas), as well as Oxford Admissions Assessment Tests.

Arts and Culture

Since 2010 we have created high-quality productions, which have toured locally and internationally in a variety of settings. Renowned for original writing, we receive commissions for new works. Our award-winning youth theatre has been invited to perform with and for stars of stage, screen and even royalty.


Over the years we’ve secured funding to keep heritage themes alive in the consciousness of school children, youth groups and their families. At the forefront of our work is the old mining adage, “You Inherit the Past; You Build the Future.” We’re passionate about preserving history in positive modern action.


We’re passionate about engaging local communities in arts and cultural initiatives and increasing access to community events. We’ve built a reputation as a positive enabler and we work tirelessly to address systematic inequality via our community driven learning, volunteering and employment initiatives.

project portfolio

We’re committed to a programme of engagement initiatives for people living in a range of community settings. Our extensive portfolio of work continues to grow. We devise unique projects that have a positive impact on people. Visit our portfolio of projects to see the range of our activities and impact.


We have a wide range of resources to hire for professional and amateur use throughout the UK. Resources include teaching and learning resources, costumes, technical equipment, books and magazines and digital content, both as an end product and as a development service.

Driven By Community

Enter CIC is known as a positive enabler across County Durham and the North East. We specialise in raising aspiration, combatting social isolation, improving mental and physical wellbeing as well as developing volunteering and employment skills. We have won awards and plaudits for our work with the young and elderly in diverse communities.

Enter CIC works hard to level the playing field for people. Established in 2010, we have now worked with nearly 200,000 people and have a history of making a huge difference to people in communities with aspirations in  the cultural, heritage, education and arts sectors. 

We work hard to ensure that even the most significantly isolated, marginalised or deprived communities have access to high quality experiences, allowing its members to be recognised for their talents rather than their post codes or backgrounds.
