BARNSLEY College’s new business hub - which has been created to inspire start-ups and young entrepreneurs to set up in the town - was officially opened yon Thursday.
Shadow Minister for Further Education and Skills Toby Perkins was on hand to open the Falcon Street facility.
As the visit took place during Colleges Week, the MP highlighted the importance of local colleges and listened to the experiences of staff and learners.
A college spokesperson said: “The centre will be a new hub for entrepreneurs, small businesses and start-up businesses.
“Its aim is to aid talented entrepreneurs to expand their business and access a huge network of local businesses and commercial guidance in partnership with Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber of Commerce.”
