There is an established infrastructure of specialised facilities available on-site and industry links are well established. The aim of the programme is to develop your understanding of the environmental and land-based sector, its processes and systems drawing on moral, ethical, commercial, political and social viewpoints.
The centre’s long term link with industry ensures that there is sound delivery and a strong student experience.
Bridgend College has an array of on-site resources to deliver the course, including 110 acres supporting a wide range of habitats that our learners actively manage. Situated in Central South Wales the course draws on resources such as Brecon Beacons National park, Gower Peninsula AONB, Heritage Coast, Pembrokeshire National Park, Kenfig Nature Reserve and many other local areas run by organisations in the sector. This unique landscape and biodiversity offers a wide range of experiential learning opportunities in pristine habitats.
