Adult learners celebrated their success recently with an awards ceremony held in Merthyr Tydfil College.

Working Skills for Adults 2 and Adult Community Learning in Merthyr Tydfil held the event to recognise learners’ achievements in a variety of subjects, including Welsh reception skills. Forty learners received an accredited qualification for increasing their Welsh language knowledge following a free course which was delivered by Working Skills for Adults 2.

Kerry O’Donovan, Corporate Risk and Equalities Manager for Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council who attended the event said: “We are delighted to see the Council and the College working in partnership in this way to improve Welsh language skills for customers within the County Borough. By sharing resources in this way, we are able to make upskilling workers across the County Borough much more accessible to all.”

Working Skills for Adults 2 has been supported by the European Social Fund through the Welsh Government. It has a variety of free courses available to employed or self-employed people who may be looking to change career or upskill in their current employment (eligibility criteria exists).
