The success of this strategy is becoming evident from the high success rates, commendations and excellent feedback we have received in each of our teaching areas, including the college being shortlisted for the 2015 Colegau Cymru Teaching Award.
Our Health and Social Care Division has also been named the best division in Wales for the second consecutive year.
