Our new campus in Aberdare is Now Open 


This is an exciting time, not just for Coleg y Cymoedd but for the town of Aberdare and surrounding communities.

The new state of the art college campus has been built to service the needs and requirements for those living in and near Aberdare.

The £20m college campus will see a transformation in the quality of further education facilities in the Cynon Valley.

It is hoped that the new college will be a major boost for the local economy in the longer term.
