Employer: Durham County Council

Helen Tones, GX Coordinator at DCC, said working with New College Durham has definitely enhanced her business: “We have developed the qualifications of numerous staff in our facilities allowing us to deliver a great exercise class timetable - with a flexible approach from New College Durham who accommodates our business needs. Future workings will involve student development on a partnership basis enhancing both student and practical working skills in our gyms.

“New College Durham is very accommodating, seeking new qualifications, and a forward thinking College that recognises the business needs of a Local Authority and the need for partnership working.

“I would recommend working with New College Durham to other businesses as they have a relaxed yet professional approach to making partnership working easy and right on trend.”
