Coleg Sir Gar and Coleg Ceredigion is committed to developing its bilingual provision and ethos. We promote bilingualism and encourage all our students to develop and use their Welsh language skills. The Welsh language is unique to Wales and very important to us as a college.
Everyone living in Wales can be proud of the language, even if they don’t speak it themselves. The language belongs to everyone who lives here and there are educational, employability and social benefits of being able to speak two languages. You can be part of two cultures and enjoy the variety of idioms, sayings, history, poetry, literature, music and traditions.
Speaking Welsh, even at a very basic level is fantastic for your CV and could open doors to all sorts of opportunities for you in the future. Many jobs in Wales now require the ability to communicate effectively in both Welsh and English, so studying bilingually could give you the advantage when you’re looking for work.
Your bilingual skills are highly valuable and you should take advantage of the support we can give you at the college to further develop those skills. We can help you improve your career opportunities by allowing you to study a range of courses bilingually, especially in the priority subject areas of Health & Social Care, Childcare, Public Services, Land-based studies and Sport.
There are lots of opportunities to use and celebrate Welsh across the College, for example:
Our two Welsh Language Officers work to support our learners and staff across all campuses:
Each year we are exceptionally proud of our elected Coleg Cymraeg Ambassadors who help us to promote and organise Welsh Language opportunities amongst our learners across the college.
