Barnsley College Principal and Chief Executive, Christopher Webb, said: “We understand that choosing the right college and study programme can be a very difficult decision. Here at Barnsley College we offer a range of pathways to help our students go on to achieve the career they want and our Open Evening is the ideal opportunity to find out more about what we offer. We are constantly making improvements to ensure that our students are learning in an excellent environment and with the opening of the new Construction centre and our new Sixth Form campus, opening in January 2016, it is the perfect time to join us. We look forward to welcoming lots of potential new students on 7 October.”
