During the online sessions, current and prospective students will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss a range of topics on each subject, or general college information.

Chief Executive Yana Williams said: “People are at home in self-isolation, but lessons are still taking place and we are processing applications from students planning to join us in the next academic year.

“We are on hand to support and guide you and answer any questions you may have at this difficult time.

“The online sessions are also a chance to speak to lecturers and communicate with other students, which has already had a positive impact on the wellbeing of both the learners and our staff.”

She added: “It’s important – absolutely vital – that we keep talking and are there for each other over the coming weeks and months, and that Coleg Cambria is at the heart of that.”
