Llanelli Vocational Village

 Project Overview

This unique project proposal was to make progress with respect to WG’s transformational agenda with the establishment of a confederated ‘Vocational Village’ in the Llanelli cluster of secondary schools comprising the existing four 11-16 learning settings namely Bryngwyn, Coedcae, Glan Y Môr, St. John Lloyd, the bilingual 11-19  learning setting at Strade, Ysgol Heol Goffa special school and the post 16 tertiary institution at Coleg Sir Gâr.  

The “Vocational Village” concept based at each of the learning establishments was developed to allow pupils to further develop specialist vocational skills facilities on each of the Llanelli secondary school sites.

The completed development now provides the following facilities in particular:

Bryngwyn -  a Construction Skills Education Centre

St John Lloyd -  a specialist catering training facility and small training restaurant

Strade -  a music technology facility

Coedcae -  a performing arts and media facility  

Glan Y Môr -  a caring and child care facility

Project Cost

The projects were funded by Welsh Government through its 21st Century Schools and Colleges Programme and by the Local Authority's Modernising Education Programme.
