Work with us

We have been on an incredible journey over the last 3 years. We have faced the most challenging funding settlements in recent FE history. However, due to the resilience of the incredible people who work here, we have enjoyed enormous success as evidenced in our Welsh Government Learner Outcome Report, Learner Voice Survey, Staff Survey and Financial Performance.
