Laura Thomas moved from home to home and struggled at school due to the constant upheaval. At 16 she had to live on her own so made the decision to turn her life around by enrolling at Coleg Morgannwg. Laura passed GCSEs in Media Studies, English, ICT, Sociology and excelled at a National Diploma in Performing Arts while at the college. Laura has been chosen from more than 12,000 part time and full time students as the college’s most outstanding student at a recent awards ceremony. Laura, who is now at Aberystwyth University studying Television, Film and Performance, said: “If I am honest, the award is a little overwhelming but I am delighted to win it. Coleg Morgannwg opened a gateway for me to improve my prospects in life and the support of the staff helped me build my confidence and allowed me to reach my full potential. “I never thought I would be able to go to university, but going to college has changed my life and made me realise that nothing is impossible.

OUR TIME OUR FUTURE BUSINESS STUDENTS MAKE A CLEAN SWEEP Business Administration students at Coleg Morgannwg gain hands-on experience of running a company on an international level with the college’s Experiences Generating New Innovation (EGNI) programme. There are 42 countries involved in the scheme, including Malaysia, which has just become part of the scheme. Their companies, ‘Clean Sweep’, Cariad and Greets & Treats sell products to other practice firms in 42 countries across the world. They were set up to resemble real businesses with different departments such as marketing, sales and accounts. The only difference is that no money or products actually change hands. The EGNI programme is offered to all Business Administration students alongside traditional theoretical lessons. During the programme students ‘attend’ trade fairs around the world with other practice firms to drum-up new business and develop contacts. Such is the success of EGNI at Coleg Morgannwg it acts as Companies House for other practice firms in the UK, and is the central base for other colleges and schools across Britain to ‘bank’ its proceeds. Lecturer Christine Thomas said: “EGNI is a great way for young people to gain practical experience of running a business”. Abi Powell, from Aberdare studied Business Administration using the EGNI scheme and now works for rail and civil engineering company, Hammond (ECS) Ltd.

Coleg Morgannwg joined forces with the Cardiff Blues Academy in 2010 and what a start? - Four students have received debut caps for the under-18 Wales side within a year of joining the college’s rugby academy. Clive Jones, the director of rugby at Coleg Morgannwg said: “We are thrilled for the boys who have got their caps. They really deserve it as they all have a tremendous attitude and have worked hard to get into the national setup”. 18 MORGANNWG.AC.UK Callum Lewis said “The college has been great, without playing in the competitive college league I don’t think I would have been called up for Wales which shows how much they have helped my career. The academy is a perfect balance between work and rugby; the tutors give us responsibility and space. The coaching staff have been great and ensure that we never take anything for granted. I am now hoping to secure my spot with the Blues, earn more caps and pass my course with top marks. Anyone who wants to learn and play rugby should definitely get down to the college.” Gethin Watts, Cardiff Blues’ regional performance development manager, said: “We have enjoyed helping Coleg Morgannwg to deliver this course which could potentially produce some of the Cardiff Blues’ rugby stars of the future. The holistic nature of the course means that even after players’ careers have come to an end they’ve got other skills and qualifications which will enable them to carry on working in sport.” Coleg Morgannwg hope to further develop the relationship with the Cardiff Blues to continue to produce top rugby talent and ensure that the individuals have a career to rd look forward to whether it is in rugby or not.

BUILDING FOR ‘OUR’ FUTURE The Coleg Morgannwg Construction team is working with Laing O’Rourke to deliver a lecture support programme which gives students a fantastic insight into the construction industry and experience of a working site. The programme runs alongside the construction course and is a result of Laing O’Rourke’s contract with Coleg Morgannwg to build its new state-of-the-art £40M campus at Nantgarw. Judith Evans, Principal said: “The lecture support programme has been invaluable to our construction students and has equipped them with the tools that they need to succeed in a tough industry. The job market is 24 fierce at the moment, with youth unemployment in Wales at a record high, so we want to ensure that our students have the edge over the competition. “It is great to see so many students getting a unique chance to kick start their careers in the construction industry.” The students are also able to work with the construction company on long term work experience placements getting a real taste of the working environment. Two students will also be selected for paid placements as student engineers, allowing them an even greater level of responsibility on site. But it doesn’t stop there as well as being involved in the building of their MORGANNWG.AC.UK new college campus they work on the £34m development at Merthyr Health Park. Stephen Robbins looks after the lecture support programme and is the corporate social responsibility (CSR) manager at Laing O’Rourke, said: “The initiatives we have on this project are fantastic for both Laing O’Rourke and Coleg Morgannwg. We have a great relationship with the college staff, students and the wider residential and business communities surrounding our sites which demonstrates our commitment to CSR. MAKING THE BENCH MARK First Year Diploma in Carpentry and Joinery course students recently undertook a project to design and build two large wooden picnic benches for use by their fellow students. PE OF TO COME In real ‘the apprentice’ style they started by identifying the skills they would need and matched each member to a role. The nominated Project Manager co-coordinated the group. They all worked so hard, even giving up their breaks to ensure the benches were completed on time. One Student said “I am really pleased with our bench, when we were given the task, I was quite nervous as it seemed a huge challenge but we have all worked together and it will be great to see our bench being used by other students”. Darren Lewis construction lecturer said “I am so proud of this group, they are all first years and the quality of their work is excellent” The group have now completed their first year and many will be going onto the 2nd year of the Diploma at the college. If they successfully complete their second year they will have the chance to study on the Extended Diploma in Construction.

CALLUM SPARKS AN INTEREST Electrical Engineering student Callum Morgan beat off the opposition of 15 students in the Welsh final of the World Skills competition. He went on to represent Wales in the Welsh World Skills finals. 26 MORGANNWG.AC.UK FEMALE FUTURES Coleg Morgannwg has seen an upsurge in girls shunning traditionally feminine courses and taking on typically male subjects, with a 5% increase in 2011 in the number taking on engineering apprenticeships. Cerys Williams, completed her BTEC National Certificate in Manufacturing and Engineering, and went on to become the first female apprentice at Allevard Springs Ltd in Clydach Vale. Cerys‘s love of engineering since she was a little girl grew from spending time with her grandfather in his shed learning how to make things with his tools. Cerys says: “I am very grateful to Coleg Morgannwg for giving me the help and confidence I needed. My course and subject tutors were all very supportive, as I lacked confidence in my work. I was always asking ME CH M IF SO M ARE AN O CO OTO YO IC TO ON NT R M U I S R : F ACT EC NTE C RE M HA RE O EP ER U N S HO TH ICS TED R NE YR CO IN S 08 TY UR A ES 0 D S 0 questions and the tutors were always there to help and answer my questions. “I picked up so many skills and the combination of subjects helped my organisation as well as my working manual knowledge. Talking about her role in a male dominated industry, Cerys believes women can offer a different set of skills. She said: “I think that women can bring different things to engineering because they can look at things in a different way. Being the first ever woman to work within engineering at my company has been challenging. But despite my worries, I feel I have proven to myself and to my colleagues that I have the abilities necessary to be a competent engineer” “The main thing for women to remember when going into a trade is that they have the same right to do the work as any man and there is support out there for those who want to learn.” Kevin Dickens, an Engineering tutor, said: “Vocational courses offer a great springboard into business. Modern industries recognise that women do as good a job, despite the outdated stereotypes. I am proud to be part of a college that has such a forward thinking.” E F 16 IL C ? 9 38 OL 25 LE GE , d i iÕ BTEC FOUNDATION TIER LEVEL 1 DIPLOMA IN ENGINEERING (& WBQ) BTEC LEVEL 2 DIPLOMA AND PERFORMING ENGINEERING OPERATIONS LEVEL 1 IN ENGINEERING OR ELECTRONIC ENGINEERING (& WBQ) BTEC LEVEL 3 SUBSIDIARY DIPLOMA AND ENGINEERING PERFORMING ENGINEERING OPERATIONS LEVEL 2 IN MANUFACTURING (& WBQ) BTEC LEVEL 3 SUBSIDIARY DIPLOMA AND ENGINEERING PERFORMING ENGINEERING OPERATIONS LEVEL 1 IN MANUFACTURING (PATHWAYS TO APPRENTICESHIPS & WBQ) NVQ LEVEL 2 ELECTRONIC ENGINEERING AND COMPUTER REPAIR PERFORMING ENGINEERING OPERATIONS LEVEL 1 AND 2 IN ENGINEERING CHECK OUT ‘WHAT’S ON AND WHERE’ IN THE CENTRE PAGES OR EVEN BETTER FIND OUT MORE DETAILS ABOUT THE INDIVIDUAL COURSES AVAILABLE AT MORGANNWG.AC.UK/ENGINEERING 27 14-19 LEARNING PATHWAYS COLEG MORGANNWG WORK WITH ALL 19 SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN RHONDDA CYNON TAF TO GIVE YOU A WIDER CHOICE OF LINK PROGRAMMES.

It also aims to provide opportunities for volunteers who want to gain more experience in working in a sports environment to help run clubs and to pick up awards and qualifications. As well as setting up extra-curricular clubs the 5 x 60 programme tries to make sure all activities are sustainable by developing links with local clubs. An important part of the programme is to listen to the needs of students and provide activities they want to participate in. Activities in 2011 ranged from traditional team sports STUDENTS ‘PULL TOGETHER’ FOR RED NOSE DAY such as rugby, football, netball or hockey to outdoor pursuits such as mountain biking, hill walking or rock climbing to indoor classes such as Zumba, street dance or martial arts. We aim to make joining in as easy and as flexible as possible, activities are run as ‘turn up and play’, structured coaching sessions, competitive fixtures, or fun festivals. Over 100 students studying on various courses from the Nantgarw campus joined forces with teams of British Airways Maintenance staff in Cardiff to raise money for Comic Relief. The teams took part in an ‘Aircraft pull’ at Cardiff International Airport on Red Nose Day. Before each pull, professional sportsmen Matt Elias (400m hurdler) and David Roberts (Olympic swimmer) provided warm up activities. In addition to the fundraising, trophies were awarded for ‘best dressed team’, ‘most sponsorship money raised’ and ‘fastest time’, as well as a medal for every entrant. Since British Airways joined forces with Comic Relief in June 2010, the airline has raised in excess of £700,000 for ‘Flying Start’ – the airline’s charity partnership with Comic Relief, which aims to transform the lives of vulnerable and disadvantaged children in the UK and around the world. SPORTING CHANCE In 2010/11 Coleg Morgannwg joined the colleges’ rugby league, with students now getting the chance to travel throughout the country playing different college teams. And it gets even better …. our budding valleys rugby stars are being coached by Clive Jones the former Director of Rugby at Pontypridd, who is now the new Course Director for the Level 3 Diploma in Sports Performance and Excellence. An added extra comes from Coleg Morgannwg hosting the Cardiff Blues Academy which means our students are given the chance to turn their sporting dreams into reality; they get to train and play alongside the young professional rugby players of Cardiff Blues.
