Two young entrepreneurs studying at Coleg y Cymoedd recently secured â€˜Silverâ€™ award in the first Skills Competition Wales Enterprise competition, which took place at NPTC LLandarcy Academy.
Although Elinor Brewer, studying Counselling and Lee Thomas Vowles of Creative Industries are both members of the collegeâ€™s Edge Network, this was the first occasion they had worked together.
The two learners competed against learners from Neath Port Talbot College, The College, Merthyr Tydfil and Coleg Cambria and despite being a team of only two, they demonstrated business acumen and confidence for their idea covering support for families with mental health issues.
Both learners run their own businesses whilst studying at Coleg y Cymoedd and are examples of what can be achieved if you follow your passion with determination!
