Coleg y Cymoedd
Coleg y Cymoedd has a range of courses specifically designed to meet the study needs of adult learners; it provides higher education courses with a number of partner Universities including Cardiff Metropolitan University and UHOVI, part of the University of South Wales; it is also a collaborative partner of the University of South Wales. Last year Coleg y Cymoedd opened a new railway training facility at Nantgarw Campus and a new motor vehicle training facility at Ystrad Mynach Campus. These projects were undertaken so as to ensure that Coleg y Cymoedd remained responsive to employer needs and hence enhanced its learners opportunities for employment.
Coleg y Cymoedd has invested heavily into its campuses over the last few years; this has resulted in excellent buildings and facilities, which include gyms and fitness suites, nurseries, high quality restaurants, and salons offering a wide range of hair and beauty treatments. Coleg y Cymoedd is currently developing a new campus in Aberdare which will open to learners in September 2017. Besides that, it has campuses in Nantgarw, Rhondda and Ystrad Mynach making it the first choice for further education in Caerphilly County and Rhondda Cynon Taff.
