Northern College Library and Learning Support Centre reading roomOn 19 May 2014 our Learning Resources Centre (LRC) Manager visited the LRC team at Northern College for Residential and Community Adult Education at Stainborough, Barnsley.

The Northern Residential team is a double Council for Learning Resources in Colleges (CoLRiC) Beacon award winner for curriculum integration through their work with students as personal tutors and for integrating the use of tablets into the curriculum for  in the classroom from 2007 and 2013.

The visit was useful for gaining insight and comparing LRC services to learners; induction, support, eresources and stock. As well as the history of the Northern and Hillcroft.

Part of Northern’s Wentworth Castle grounds have been recently restored and are managed by their Wentworth Castle Heritage Trust.
