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.

We work closely with Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol who support us to create training and learning opportunities in Welsh to inspire learners and apprentices to use the Welsh skills they have. We are grateful to the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol for their investment and support. 


There are lots of opportunities to use and celebrate Welsh across the College, for example:

  • Work experience and apprenticeship placements in Welsh
  • Guidance on where to find local courses on learning Welsh
  • Studying part of your course in Welsh or bilingually
  • Attending ‘Welsh for the Workplace’ skills sessions
  • Re-sit your GCSE Welsh First Language
  • Welsh enrichment activities such as visiting speakers, games, visits
  • Progression opportunities to HE Welsh medium courses
  • Cross college bilingual events to celebrate our Welsh heritage and national days e.g. Diwrnod Shwmae, Diwrnod Santes Dwynwen, Dydd Miwsig Cymru, Dydd Gwyl Dewi, Six Nations Rugby, National Eisteddfod, Urdd Gobaith Cymru Eisteddfod competitions and sporting events.
