Work Welsh learners success

There is cause for celebration at the beginning of the new term in many further education colleges as they hear their Welsh language exams results of their Work Welsh staff. 17 Work Welsh learners in further education colleges decided to sit WJEC exams during the summer.

There was success in Bridgend College with 4 students successfully passing the Entry exam and 6 from Coleg Sir Gâr successful in Entry, Foundation and Intermediate levels.

Congratulations to Belinda in Pembrokeshire College who was successful in the entry exam. Belinda works in the Animal Care unit in Pembrokeshire College and is hoping to continue to study on the Foundation level.

A very big congratulations to Georgie Radmore and Liz Morgan from Gelli Aur campus, Coleg Sir Gâr, who passed the Entry exam following only a year of study rather than the usual two.

Additionally, Ben James and Darren Sykes-Wilkes from Coleg Sir Gâr, Aberteifi campus, did exceptionally well in the GCSE second language exam with an A* each.

The Work Welsh course, led by the National Centre for Learning Welsh funded by the Welsh Government is in its third year, with approximately 210 lecturers in Further Education Colleges in Wales benefiting from the course each year.

If you are interested in joining the project this year, contact the Human Resources department or Bilingual Champion in your College. There is no requirement for learners to complete an exam as part of the course.
