VITAL work to help war-torn Iraq is under way in Huddersfield.
Huddersfield Technical College is continuing to help rebuild educational systems across Iraq by playing host to deans and heads of department from Kurdish technical institutions this month.

The college is taking part in the second phase of a major project that aims to equip educators in the war-torn country with the practical knowledge needed to improve their colleges.
Annette Rhodes, international manager, said: "Links with Kurdistan are getting stronger by the month.
"This is the third visit from the region's educators from Sulaimany. The practical knowledge the college's experts have been passing on to senior managers will hopefully start to have a real impact at ground level."
Sarkawt Rostam Hassan, from the Foundation of Technical Institutions in Sulaimany, said: "We have been particularly interested in discovering how the college manages its work-based learning and relations with local business and the community."
The project involves 10 other further education colleges from the UK.
