The college got straight onto their suppliers when female engineering students pointed out their boots were too big! Here's the suitably booted students putting their best foot forward. One small step for a student, one giant leap for womankind.
“Bring back the college choir! It has been temporarily cancelled and no one else has been approached to lead it. This was really successful in getting staff together across college.”

They recently made their big debut singing to you all at the graduation ceremony at St Davids Cathedral!
College students attending a traineeship course over the summer took some taster sessions in various areas within the college such as hairdressing, IT and engineering. They also participated in a scheme to test out using mobile technology - and learning Apps - on loaned tablet devices to enhance their learning experience. Photographed one of our trainees using the tablet provided.
VocalEyes was easily-accessible on the tablet devices and this ensured all learners had their say on the running of their course. The group contributed 21 ideas and also familiarised themselves with how to use VocalEyes. Empowered and participating in their learning,
Learner Voice has never been more important in helping the college respond to learner needs, communicating with specific groups and encouraging students to become active learners - and citizens.

When a member of staff posted to acknowledge that we should accept and celebrate our differences, rather than “forcing a ‘one size fits all’ culture philosophy”, 88 of you showed your support by giving it a respectable average rating of 3.2!

An excellent example for students to follow.

You may have heard of the Proposed Future Generations Bill which is being introduced by the Welsh Government this summer. This Bill has been designed to ensure that the public sector is focused on delivering the long term goals we want to achieve for the future of Wales. The Welsh Assembly Government has begun a National Conversation where Welsh citizens can contribute and express what Wales they want. VocalEyes is your chance to be involved in the National Conversation regarding the future direction & development of Wales.
We need to create jobs, and get the right growth to lift people out of poverty. We need to make our environment and our communities more resilient to the major environmental problems we face including addressing declining biodiversity. We need people to be healthy, to achieve their potential and to make Wales a more equal society. We need to reduce our consumption of natural resources and act to tackle the causes and consequences of climate change.
Please use VocalEyes and join in the conversation and share your thoughts and goals alongside those of the Welsh Government.
Blog posts are now available on VocalEyes. The blog can be used to celebrate the positive stories of good ideas turning into action. These stories can then be shared across social media sites and promoted to your networks.
Art has always been a source of joy for many. It is a form of therapy to relieve the stresses of the mind, and can come in many forms. From paintings to sketches, clay statues to wire figures, it is appreciated by the masses.
As educators, you must feel a strong sense of pride when you see your students excel, just as a parent does as they witness their child grow. Therefore, one of you proud mother (or father!) hens gave the lovely suggestion of encouraging the art students to produce a small structure that would be showcased in the courtyard at the end of term.
165 of you logged on to rate this idea and show our support and even take this idea to new heights with your comments!
With the initial suggestion only being 1ft high, comments responded to it questioning "Why can't it be bigger?", obviously encouraging bigger and better. While another comment opened up the doors to include the welders and carpenters as opposed to just the art students.
How lucky these students must be to be taught by such encouraging academics.
