Policy and Development

ColegauCymru represents the Further Education (FE) sector to decision makers and influencers on policy issues that affect post-16 education and training, including the links between education and the economy, health and wellbeing. 

Our work aims to increase the profile and influence of Further Education in Wales, to ensure that learners have access to the best quality education and training opportunities. 

Education matters are largely devolved, therefore most of our policy and advocacy related work is focused on the Welsh Government and the National Assembly for Wales. 

We develop and promote policy responses to key issues and take an active role in engaging with National Assembly Committee calls for evidence.  We respond to consultations from a range of organisations and represent the Further Education sector on a variety of committees, task & finish and advisory groups.
