Council Member - Judith Evans
Before retirement I was Principal of Coleg y Cymoedd, and worked in Welsh further education for 28 years. As Principal I was responsible for overseeing the institution’s strategic direction and for its four campuses. This included curriculum planning, learner support, human/physical resources, risk management, and quality improvement. I have been involved in 3 college mergers and several college capital investment programmes. I strived to ensure that learners had access to a variety of educational resources and to support across a range of communities. While Principal, I worked closely with local and regional employers, responding to their future workforce requirements. I was a member of the Welsh Government’s Taskforce for the South Wales Valleys, Chair of ColegauCymru, a member of the British Council’s Wales Advisory Committee, and of the Cardiff Capital Region Economic Growth Partnership. As an adult returner to education myself, I have always valued adult education and the opportunities that it can provide.
