Torfaen Learning Zone

COVID-19 Update

You’re probably wondering if TLZ will still be ready to receive learners as planned this September.  Like the rest of the world, COVID-19 is having a significant impact on our daily lives and operations but we’re still making good progress.

We’re doing everything we can to make sure we’re ready to receive you as planned.  However, just in case there is a short delay, we’re working on a back up plan to ensure we keep learning going.

We’re monitoring the situation closely and will keep you updated. Please check back for updates.

Opening in September 2020, our brand new £24 million purpose built campus situated in the heart of Cwmbran will become the home for all post 16 education in the Torfaen borough.

Our brand new Centre, located next to Morrisons, offers state of the art facilities and is easily accessible by public transport.

There’s plenty of choice! With A Level subjects including English Literature and Spanish on offer, Welsh Baccalaureate, vocational qualifications and foundation degrees; there’s definitely something for everyone.
