On June 15th, we attended the Learning and Work Institute (Formally NIACE Dysgu Cymru) Adult Learning Inspire! Awards for 2017, held at the City Hall, Cardiff.
Our tutor Melanie Baugh creates beautiful art inspired by personal experience and the spectacular colours found in the natural world in the Vale of Clwyd in Wales where she lives, works and teaches. Her story has been documented in Aspire magazine.
27 April 2017 marked the network launch of Addysg Oedolion Cymru | Adult Learning Wales, an independent voluntary adult education movement and the largest all-Wales provider of adult learning - coming as the result of mergers between the WEA (Workers’ Educational Association) in north and south Wales, Coleg Harlech, and YMCA Wales Community College.
Press Release: Following the announcement that learning is to end at the former Coleg Harlech Wern Fawr site in July, the buildings operator, Addysg Oedolion Cymru | Adult Learning Wales – formerly known as WEA YMCA CC Cymru - has reaffirmed its commitment to Harlech and underlined the importance of working together with the community at a time of uncertainty.
“The tutor delivered the session at a very high standard, she engaged well with us. It was fun and informative.”
“For me this course was the best! I think this course is helping me to improve my English language, and my relationships with my colleagues at work, because now I can understand and talk with them.”
“A small class was good because we had the attention we needed to learn and progress to the next stage.”
