About Us

Coleg y Cymoedd is a medium sized college with a turnover of around £40m.The college serves the communities of two local authorities in the South Wales central valleys and was created in August 2013, following a merger of two neighbouring colleges.

The map below shows the geographical areas of Caerphilly (on the right of the shaded area) and Rhondda Cynon Taf (RCT) (on the left). The area stretches from the heads of the valleys region (Rhymney, Aberdare and Rhondda) into the Gwent valleys (Ystrad Mynach and surrounding areas) and at the southern-most point of RCT and just north of Cardiff (Nantgarw).

About Coleg Y Cymoedd

The college provides courses from entry level to level 6 at four campuses located in Aberdare, Nantgarw, Rhondda, and Ystrad Mynach and has approximately 5200 full time and 4,415 part time learners.

In addition, the college offers community education in partnership with the two local authorities and one other franchise relationship with Valleys Kids.

The college has a significant work-based learning contract with apprenticeship provision from level 2 to level 7 and a commercial department was created in 2014, providing a range of provision to complement that offered through mainstream FE and work-based learning, with a particular focus on employers.


With campus sites in Aberdare, Nantgarw, Rhondda and Ystrad Mynach we are the first choice for further education in Caerphilly County and Rhondda Cynon Taff.
