Dr Dan was delighted to visit Otley College, to see for himself the exciting developments under the leadership team. Following a meeting to hear more about the College's ambitious plans for growth and new opportunities for its students, Dr Dan very much enjoyed a tour of the campus.
During the tour, Dr Dan spent some time in the vehicle mechanics area, the construction hub and the animal welfare centre, before learning more about the new care farm currently being developed on site.
