Coleg Sir Gâr’s foundation and pre-foundation team held an awards day to recognise the achievements of its students.
The programmes offer students a supported introduction to college and to further education and is aimed at those returning to education and for those who need additional support with studies or social situations.
The reputable success of the programmes speaks for itself with 80% students progressing to higher-level learning. This year five students completed their course with 100% attendance with a course average of 92%.
Kim Goodwin, Coleg Sir Gâr programme leader said: “It’s important to recognise the achievements of students as the success of the programme is very much nurtured with the support of mentors, on an individual level.
“I am always moved by the progress students have made since they started college, some entering education with a fearful and nervous approach, but our team works very successfully and I’m proud of the difference we make to young people’s lives.”
The awards day was also supported by Sam Brown, from the Down to Earth Project and Sian Thomas and Phil Jones from the Prince’s Trust.
