The area is also close to several Universities, enabling opportunities for further study, plus our Barnsley Hub has close working relationships with many of these providers. Transport links are excellent, by road or rail, and there’s a wealth of country pubs, award winning restaurants and great shopping opportunities.
In recent years, our communities have faced significant challenges and suffered high levels of unemployment. However, a significant level of regeneration is taking place, attracting global employers into the area. This investment and growth potential marks a new chapter for Barnsley, which is matched by NAT’s unwavering determination to provide our children with the best possible educational opportunities.
Of course there will be challenges, but we know the rewards to be much greater. It you want to make a difference where it really matters, we’d love to hear from you.
