About the Courses
New qualifications from 2019
In 2016, Qualifications Wales reviewed the current provision of Health and Social Care and Childcare qualifications in Wales. The review identified several areas for improvement in the design, assessment and delivery of care qualifications.
City & Guilds/WJEC are working in partnership with the sector to develop the new qualifications which are knowledge-based as well as practical and work-based. They will provide a sound basis for learners to apply knowledge and skills in the workplace and also provide opportunities to progress to further and higher level study.
You will benefit from highly qualified and industry experienced staff alongside work placement opportunities and practical activities relevant to your individual course. The wide range of courses ensures there is opportunity for you to gain professional qualifications accredited by the industry.
The department has unique and exciting facilities such as our ‘Forest School’ teaching area and the College’s own Day Nursery where you will experience cutting edge industry practice.
