Studied – Level 3 Agriculture
Currently – Trainee livestock buyer for ABP UK
My time at Llysfasi allowed me to further my understanding of the industry in areas that I wouldn’t have gained remaining on the family farm. Llysfasi gave me the chance to take the theory understanding taught to us, on to a productive working farm that was only a step away from the teaching block, something I believe would not be possible in other colleges. The practical understanding I gained at Llysfasi was fundamental to my learning at university as I could relate the theory work back to the college farm, as practical experience at university can be limited.
The understanding I gained at Llysfasi allowed me to move onto Harper Adams University to further my studies in agriculture and I have been extremely fortunate to gain a position at ABP Shrewsbury as a trainee livestock buyer. I am thoroughly enjoying my new position and it would not have been possible without the education and experiences gained through college and the people who supported me along the way.
Studied – A Level English, Drama, Maths and French
Currently – Presenter and News Correspondent for the BBC
“I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do in the future, so I chose a range of different subjects to study at A Level. I’m now employed by the BBC as a Presenter and News Correspondent and studying at Yale Sixth gave me the confidence and skills to go onto university. I made some amazing friends, had some great teachers who I’ll never forget and had a great time in Wrexham!
“I look back on my time at Yale with pride and fondness and will never forget it!”
