Take a look

I grew up on a farm and was always fiddling about with machinery. I really enjoy the practical aspects of the course in the workshops and my tutors are really good. I preferred the workshops at Coleg Gwent’s Crosskeys Campus, compared to other colleges and feedback from friends who were already studying at Coleg Gwent was great. I’m currently on an apprenticeship with Doncaster.
