Coleg Sir Gar is hosting a Welsh-medium Agriculture Conference and Learning Fair at its Gelli Aur campus on December 8.
The public event hosted by Coleg Sir Gar will include a talk about the future of the agricultural industry in Wales by Simon Thomas, AM and Dr Cerys Ann Jones from Aberystwyth University will be talking about the challenges of climate change for Welsh farmers.
Coleg Sir Gar lecturer Cennydd Jones will also be talking about the benefits of studying a degree in agriculture.
Following three years of development, on August 1st 2013 Coleg Sir Gar was formally dissolved as a Further Education Institution and a new entity created, Coleg Sir Gar, a limited company with charitable status.
This new entity was designated for the purpose of delivering further and higher education. Simultaneously, in conjunction with the University of Wales Trinity Saint David a new Group structure was created with Coleg Sir Gar entering the group as a wholly owned subsidiary. In doing so a sustainable future is ensured for the college and more importantly greater opportunities for our learners.
In May 2013 Estyn arrived for a college wide inspection, generally good but in the areas of Partnerships, Literacy and Development and The Learning environment Coleg Sir Gar was deemed excellent. This helps in the colleges overall vision “To be Excellent”.
There has recently been a new building for Animal Science and Equine Studies at Pibwrlwyd. This is just one example of the broad and diverse teaching at Coleg Sir Gar
spanning from Entry Level to Graduate Qualifications. The 14-16 provision, in partnership with the Carmarthenshire Network of schools, apprenticeships working with business as part of work based learning provision.
Registration begins at 10am, to book call 07989 640017 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Booking is essential and a live translation service is available on request.
