Friday February 13
Glyndŵr University's interim Vice-Chancellor, Professor Graham Upton, visited a Wrexham college to discuss strengthening a strategic alliance agreement.
For a number of years the university has been working collaboratively with Coleg Cambria to provide co-ordinated solutions to meet the training and skills development needs of businesses and employers in North East Wales, building on existing progression opportunities from FE to HE between the two institutions.
Coleg Cambria Principal and Chief Executive, David Jones OBE welcomed Professor Upton to the college this week.
Principal and Chief Executive at Coleg Cambria, David Jones OBE said: “I was delighted to welcome Professor Upton to Coleg Cambria, for the second time since he has started his new post. He was at the college’s AGM on our Deeside site last Friday and was able to come over to visit our Yale site this week.
“As a college we strive to provide excellent learning opportunities for the region and our long established and successful partnership with Glyndwr secures progression across a variety of subject areas for our students.
“The strategic alliance that we have developed aims to support the economic and social growth of the region through the delivery of provision which meets and anticipates the needs of regional business and employers.”
Glyndwr University interim Vice-Chancellor, Professor Graham Upton, said: “Glyndŵr University and Coleg Cambria have a strong and long-established relationship, working together to enhance the provision of further and higher education in north east Wales.
“This strategic alliance agreement serves to reinforce partnerships that were already in place with the former Yale and Deeside colleges, meaning we will have an even greater impact on the local economy, sharing information and expertise to deliver a more positive student experience.
“We are strengthening the foundations that have been in place for many years and extending our support of one another for the mutual benefit of both parties, enabling us to better serve the needs and interests of the region.
“Glyndŵr University and Coleg Cambria can now look to the future with even greater confidence.”
