Coleg Cambria’s FE provision and Toy Box Nursery have both been recognised for their excellence at a recent Estyn Awards ceremony. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Staff and Governors from Cambria were special guests at the event where they received a certificate and congratulations from Meilyr Rowlands, Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Education and Training in Wales and Kirsty Williams, Cabinet Secretary for Education. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Estyn has a key role in recognising excellence in education and training in Wales and in sharing its knowledge of that excellence across the education system to help other providers improve ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Coleg Cambria were amongst the 28 providers who achieved an overall inspection judgement of ‘excellent’ for either their current performance or their prospects for improvement in the academic year 2015 – 2016.  ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

In their FE Report Estyn inspectors applauded the college’s strategic partnerships at local, regional, national and industrial level, which enhance the curriculum offer for learners.  They also praised the exemplary learner behaviour around the college and said that the college’s care, support and guidance package is sector leading.   Inspectors also highlighted the fact that the college has an exemplary strategy and highly effective practice to develop literacy and numeracy skills for learners. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Toy Box Nursery was commended on how staff work together highly effectively to plan a range of innovative and exciting learning experiences for the children. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

David Jones OBE Chief Executive said: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“We were delighted and very proud to receive these prestigious awards for our excellent inspection judgements.    ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“The outcomes from both of our Estyn inspections were remarkable, and confirm Coleg Cambria’s position as a leading UK college, serving North East Wales and our regional cross-border economy.  I am indebted to students, staff, governors and all our partners for their amazing commitment and support in achieving these results.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
