Currently, I am the Curriculum Director at Coleg Cambria. Through my participation in the Coleg Cambria Inspiring Leaders course, I was promoted to this position.
My journey began in 2011 when I enrolled as a mature student in an evening Level 2 Joinery course. The support and experience I gained gave me the confidence to pursue a Degree in Architectural Design and Technology. In 2016, I joined Coleg Cambria as an Instructor Demonstrator, driven by my newfound appreciation for education and the desire to support others.
Progressing further, I was promoted to the role of lecturer and entrusted with delivering HE Technical Construction due to my qualifications and experience. Overcoming the challenges posed by dyslexia, I completed my PGCE with support from the college’s ALN department.
Though it may sometimes shake my confidence, it hasn’t hindered my opportunities for personal development and growth within the college.
After spending 5 years in social work, specialising in teenagers and adolescents, I wanted to have a greater impact on improving their life opportunities. This led me to complete my PGCE in Post 16 education. Over the past 23 years, I have had the privilege of supporting and empowering numerous learners, helping them increase their self-worth, aspire to higher career goals, and seize every available opportunity. I firmly believe in the transformative power of education in fostering success and happiness in life.
The favourite part of my role is working collaboratively across the college with all like-minded directorates, aiming to enhance the achievements and aspirations of all our learners. I am truly enjoying this dynamic and rewarding teamwork at Coleg Cambria.
What stands out to me about the college culture is its warm and welcoming environment. The focus on staff well-being is equally important as that of the learners. This inclusive and supportive culture creates a conducive and thriving atmosphere for everyone at Coleg Cambria.
My journey started whilst on an AET course at Coleg Cambria where I met some assessors who were also on the course. Their enthusiasm and contentment in their roles inspired me therefore I eagerly joined the College when a similar role opened up.
I have now worked at Coleg Cambria for 6 years and I find the best part of my job is the freedom to provide personalised support to learners, helping them on their unique journeys and achieving their goals. Coleg Cambria’s inclusive culture ensures unwavering support, enabling me to be part of positive changes within the college.
Working here has been rewarding both professionally and personally. I appreciate the commitment Coleg Cambria shows to its staff and learners, providing practical assistance and connecting me with valuable resources. It’s a privilege to contribute to the college’s ongoing success and make a difference in the lives of our learners.
I have been employed by Coleg Cambria for 1.5 years, working in the Foundation Learning department at Yale.
As an Art and Design lecturer, I have the privilege of supporting learners’ creativity and curiosity through a diverse learning experience encompassing digital and traditional methods. It’s incredibly rewarding to witness the progress and growing confidence of the learners throughout the year, with many advancing to higher levels within the college.
Our team collaborates closely to meet the educational and vocational needs of the learners, providing comprehensive support within the college environment. The culture at Coleg Cambria is characterised by its positive and progressive nature. The management and colleagues offer exceptional support, creating an enriching, positive, and supportive learning environment.
I have worked at Coleg Cambria for over 18 years now after finding my way to the role after working in administration and seeking a new adventure.
Enrolment time and supporting learners and staff during induction are my favourite parts of the job. Our LDS team has a great reputation for being approachable, supportive, and successful in serving learners, colleagues, and customers and I’m proud to be part of it.
What stands out at Coleg Cambria is the positive culture. It’s a flexible and supportive workplace that encourages professional development. With a Christmas shutdown and lunchtime activities like circuit class or yoga, the college promotes well-being and work-life balance. It’s a great place to work and grow.
I am currently the HR Advisor for the Institute of Technology and People Experiences at Coleg Cambria. I chose to join the college due to its stellar reputation and the opportunity it provided to make a meaningful difference using my skills.
Starting as a HR Administrator, I quickly recognized the growth potential within Coleg Cambria. Within just six months, I was promoted to my current role, affirming the college as a place where I can continually develop my career.
The college’s commitment to fostering talent has been instrumental in my journey. I am grateful for the professional growth opportunities Coleg Cambria offers and the chance to contribute to its success.
