Mr. Paice

The information requested is not recorded by the Barnsley and Doncaster training and enterprise council. TECs are private companies limited guarantee, funded by the Government to provide training which best meets the needs of the local community. TECs are free to decide with whom they contract, taking into account the needs of the local labour market.
