Some of the Coleg y Cymoedd's Health and Social Care learners taking part in a Welsh-medium First Aid course. This course was funded with money from the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol. A teacher from Ysgol Gyfun Rhydywaun delivered the course which took place over two days on the Nantgarw campus. The learners were taught how to carry out CPR, to use a defibrillator and to put people in the emergency position. The course was very inter-active and the learners really enjoyed it. They will greatly benefit from having this additional qualification which is Emergency First Aid in the Workplace.
Alison Jones, the Head of Welsh Language Developments at the College said ' We are so grateful to the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol for their support to enable the College to offer this interesting and useful course. It will be an advantage to our learners when they apply for jobs in the Care sector and is a great way of them maintaining their Welsh language skills too'.
