As a parent/carer we know you want the best for your son or daughter. As a key decision maker in their life, we’ve tried to address some of the questions you may have about studying with us.

Q

Q

Coleg Gwent is one of the largest and most successful colleges in Wales, and we’re also your local College. In our last Estyn inspection (April 2012), we matched the best performance of any college in Wales. The inspection highlighted many strengths including;

We monitor all full time students’ progress and attendance through electronic individual learning plans (eILPs) which we use to keep you informed through parents’ evenings and regular reports. We encourage students to share access to their eILP with their parents / carers. If you have any concerns please don’t hesitate to contact your son or daughter’s Personal Tutor, their Head of School or Head of Learner Services. Learner Services will be happy to provide you with any contact details.

Why should my son/daughter study at Coleg Gwent?

— Very good results — That learners from areas of high deprivation perform as well as others — That students feel safe and well cared for and are provided with good guidance and support

Q

What other opportunities do you offer?

We’re committed to developing confident and ambitious young people, and extra-curricular activities are a great way of doing this. So alongside their course, your son/daughter will be able to get involved in sport, fundraising and volunteering opportunities. This equips young people with life and work skills, helps them meet new people and looks great on their CV.

As a parent, how can I be involved?

If you still have any queries please get in touch with Learner Services at the campus on the numbers below – we’re keen to ensure your son/daughter’s time at college goes smoothly and equips them for their next step. — Blaenau Gwent Learning Zone 01495 333000 — City of Newport 01633 466175 — Crosskeys 01495 333390 — Pontypool 01495 333345 — Usk 01495 333639
