Bridgend College is wholly committed to reducing its impact on the environment at the local and global level and ensuring that sustainability remains an integral and fundamental part of the College’s strategy for success.
A VISION FOR SUSTAINABILITY
Bridgend College understands that sustainable development is as much about shifting mind-sets as well as changing unsustainable practice.
We recognise that issues such as ethical investment, equality and social justice, social care and health, access to fresh water and food, climate change, land degredation, biodiversity, modernity and social change are inextricably linked to sustainability.
We recognise that our contribution to sustainability must include operational as well as educational dimensions.
We aim to become an Eco-College; a centre of excellence and strong leader in sustainable development performance, integrating sustainable development into all functions of the organisation at all levels.
This is a challenging agenda and the contribution required is both substantial and sustained, but also absolutely necessary.
We are Excellent
We are proud to have received the very rare double ‘excellent’ in our Estyn inspection. This award reflects the dedication, innovation and passion of our learners, staff, governors and partners.
