“All learners have achieved outcomes that will enable them to take the next steps in their journey whether that is further or higher education, employment or training.
“We are sharing in the success of each learner and all schools have shared examples of this success with the Council.”
Pembrokeshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education and Lifelong Learning, Guy Woodham, added: “I congratulate all learners on their achievements. As a local authority, we have been committed to supporting learners in achieving the best possible outcomes.
