Coleg Gwent is one of the largest colleges in Wales, delivering learning to almost 20,000 students across five local authorities. This provides an opportunity to make a positive difference to many individuals, communities and to the local economy. Building on its excellent partnerships, the college will become a Career College in 2018 in two exciting areas: Health & Care and Digital/Technology.
Both areas have been identified as key regional priorities for South Wales where there are significant skills shortages. Students will benefit from an enhanced curriculum that focuses on essential employability and technical skills that prepare them for progression into careers in health & care and digital technology. Working with the college’s existing Employer Forums, students will benefit from enhanced access to these employers to help them to understand the needs of the industry and the various career pathways open to them.
