The Business Advice Hub

Powered by Great Annual Savings Group.

East Durham College’s innovative new Business Advice Hub (BAH) is one of the products of the college’s new partnership with Great Annual Savings Group (GAS).

As well as offering employment and education opportunities to students as a pathway and sporting links with Spennymoor Town FC, the partnership will result in students gaining access to invaluable insight into industry through the BAH.

The hub will act as a point of contact for students who are interested in entrepreneurial activity or specific professions, such as finance, marketing or HR.  It will also provide detail on apprenticeships and employment opportunities with GAS’ parent group of companies, GF Group.
