Modernising Education Programme

Page updated on: 22/10/2021

Carmarthenshire’s Modernising Education Programme (MEP) in collaboration with the Welsh Government’s 21st Century Schools and Colleges Programme is about transforming the network of nursery, primary and secondary schools serving the county into strategically and operationally effective resources that meets current and future need for a school based and community focused education.

This is achieved through developing and improving buildings, infrastructure and spaces that are appropriately located, designed, constructed or adapted to foster the sustainable development of the people and communities of Carmarthenshire.

By the end of 2020/21 financial year, £295 million has been invested in accommodation and facilities at schools across the county and it includes building twelve new Primary Schools and two new Secondary Schools, plus remodelling and refurbishment in a number of other schools.  More is on the way too - take a look at our “Schools in Development” page to view our most recent investment projects and progress updates.
