In his introduction Mr Trow, said, "The College has a vision to be the leading provider of innovative, high quality education and training, focusing on improving the skills base of Doncaster and South Yorkshire.


"In achieving that vision we have identified the following key markets, Preparation for work, Progression into work and Returning to work.


"I am sure you would agree that skills development in all its forms has clear business benefits such as: improving the recruitment and retention of staff; providing training, which improves the quality of the services and products you supply to your customers; improving compliance; and reducing both financial and legal risks and ultimately increasing profits.


"Doncaster College is here to support you in the development of your staff and in improving business performance."


He then went on to explain in more detail the work the College is doing in Doncaster in support of Doncaster businesses.


Guests were also treated to a delightful hot buffet, which was prepared and served by students from the Hospitality and Catering Department at the College, and this went down extremely well.
