Case Studies

Coleg Cambria supports the local economy.

Coleg Cambria pumps £400m a year into North Wales economy

AN award-winning college contributes more than £400m a year to the economy and has supported hundreds of businesses through a series of major development projects.

In the last two years alone, Coleg Cambria has opened £40million of new buildings in north east Wales, creating hundreds of temporary jobs and boosting the local construction sector.

The £10 million engineering technology complex and campus redevelopment at Bersham Road in Wrexham; the £14m sixth form centre and £3.36m Aerospace Higher Education Centre in Deeside, and a £3.5m Business School in Northop are all improving the academic and social experience for students and staff, as well as boosting a supply chain that works closely with the college.

Best in Wales

COLEG CAMBRIA is on top of the world after achieving Wales’ best results at a national skills ceremony.

The college won nine medals, was highly commended in two categories and achieved a staggering 25 points at the Worldskills UK LIVE competition in Birmingham.

Cambria finished fourth in the overall league table and number one in Wales, to the delight of Chief Executive David Jones.

Coleg Cambria students are renovating a community centre while a new £4million adult day care facility is being built

Construction trainees have been busy painting fences and benches, plastering walls, tidying the gardens and carrying out maintenance duties at Glanrafon Adult Day Care Centre in Queensferry.

Up to 50 people use the complex every day, but it is in a state of disrepair and will close next summer to be replaced by a modern single-storey facility nearby.
