Unique partnership

The University of Sunderland and York College were invited into North Yorkshire to enhance the skills and training offered within the North Yorkshire region. They will be offering employers and individuals the opportunity to develop new skills through a range of education routes for personal and business growth at Campus@Northallerton.
