Graduate from the Cardiff and Vale College
Cardiff and Vale College (CAVC) is one of the largest colleges in the country – transforming education and training across the capital region of Wales. The university has over 20,000 students each year and a large staff team of industry experts, sector specialists and knowledgeable and experienced support teams.
They are teaching people in top class industry facilities and centres of excellence across Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan; in the community and in workplaces across the region, Wales and the world.
Their focus is not simply on qualifications but also developing the skills individuals and employers require for future success. And it works – with 86% of the students progressing to further study or employment within two months of completing their course. This includes an incredible 1000 students progressing onto university level study since 2015.
The students are given unique opportunities to develop their wider skills, become entrepreneurial and employable and stand out from the crowd. Last year thousands of the students undertake work placements, compete in national entrepreneurial challenges and skills competitions and win more national awards than ever before.
The university is constantly striving to ensure and offer the best quality education and training – with Her Majesty’s Inspectorate for Education and Training, Estyn, awarding us a ‘double good’ for the quality of teaching and learning.
They are working with partners to transform education and training in the region – developing inspirational new sites and facilities that support individuals, employers and communities for the future. This includes the opening of landmark £45m City Centre Campus in the heart of Cardiff city centre; creating a stand-out home for CAVC Sport in Cardiff International Sports Campus; and working in partnership with local councils to develop an innovative new school in East Cardiff and partnerships to support young people in Cardiff and the Vale.
