The DN Colleges Group was formed in November 2017 following the successful merger of Doncaster College and North Lindsey College in the Yorkshire and Humber area. It has an annual income of GBP50 million, 1,200 staff and 13,000 students and provides a wide range of courses from Further Education and Apprenticeships through to Higher Education.

Their vision is to provide high–quality learning for the local community and focus on contributing to the economic growth of the region. The Group is now developing a structure that enables the delivery of strategic priorities and build on an ambition to strengthen the individual Colleges and maximise the benefits of merger.

DN Colleges Group is now seeking a new Governor to complement the skills within the newly formed Board, and are interested in individuals with expertise in Finance/Audit.

This is a great opportunity to be involved as they form and shape the new Board of Governors!
