  • We are aware that the move from school into Further Education can be a daunting one. This guide will explain the services that we offer to help you support your son or daughter as they make the move from school into college.

    We have high expectations of our students and will do all that we can to support them in gaining the qualifications and skills they will need to move into employment or University. We appreciate that you will also want the very best for them and for that reason we encourage you to take an active and encouraging role in their further education.

    Student Services

    Please do not hesitate to contact your son/daughter's course tutor - or our Student Services team - at any time, if you have any concerns about their progress at college, or any other matter. Due to Data Protection Act restrictions, we are unable to provide parents/carers with information about your son or daughter immediately over the telephone. We will take your details and we will phone you back, once we have verified that we are able to provide you with the information you request.

    Why choose us?

    Offering a wide range of courses spread across North East Wales, Coleg Cambria attracts students from across North Wales and North West England.

    Whether studying a specialist land-based course at Northop or Llysfasi, A levels, or one of the many other vocational options at our Deeside, Yale or Wrexham Training sites, our students receive access to excellent teaching, facilities and resources.

    We also encourage our students to make the most of the additional experiences offered at college, whether that be through second language, volunteering, and field trip options available through the Welsh Bac, fundraising activities for our adopted charity of the year or as part of sporting, debating or one of the many other student clubs.

    We enjoy extremely strong links with the local organisations based in the industries that we support and also with Universities across the country. Our courses reflect the needs of these stakeholders and our students benefit greatly from these links, through work experience options, careers guidance and guest lecturers.
