We are pleased to announce that Bridgend College Principal, Simon Pirotte, has signed the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Accord – we are the first college in Wales to sign and now sit among many other educational organsiations from around the world with the list growing by the day.

The purpose of the SDG Accord is twofold: First, it is to inspire, celebrate and advance the critical role that education has in delivering the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the value it brings to governments, business, and wider society. Secondly, the Accord is a commitment learning institutions are making to one another to do more to deliver the goals, to annually report on each signatory’s progress, and to do so in ways which share the learning with each other both nationally and internationally. An objective is that sector SDG reporting metrics will be presented at the annual UN High Level Political Forum.

We are also the first college in the UK to submit supporting resources on the new EAUC Accord website
