“Coleg y Cymoedd is temporarily relocating some of the learning activity at its Ystrad Mynach campus to allow remedial asbestos work to take place. As always, the health, safety and well-being of our learners and staff is our main priority and as a result of an in-depth asbestos report we have taken the decision and advice of professional contractors to close S block for the foreseeable future. A number of temporary classrooms will be erected and will be in place by Friday 10 October.
“We are also carrying out remedial work to some workshop areas which will be complete this week, enabling learners to safely return to the teaching space as soon as possible. We are fully committed to providing a safe learning and teaching environment and will continue to ensure all teaching areas are safe in order that learners continue to attend college as per their timetable.”
