Torfaen Learning Zone is part of the Welsh Government 21st Century Schools and Colleges programme. Managed and run by Coleg Gwent in partnership with Torfaen County Borough Council, the £24 million development replaces three English medium school sixth forms in the borough and will be home to all A Level education in Torfaen.
The new campus brings further education services together under one roof for Torfaen. Offering a wide range of courses including academic, vocational and university level qualifications, there’s something suitable for all ages and types of learners, including the Welsh Baccalaureate. Following a similar model to the Blaenau Gwent Learning Zone in Ebbw Vale, the building is fully accessible and includes specialist facilities for pupils with Additional Learning Needs (ALN).
The campus is bright, light and airy with modern amenities and facilities – an ideal environment for learning and inspiring young minds. Designed with its environmental impact in mind, the Learning Zone’s is situated in a prime location next to the Morrisons store in the town centre, making it easily accessible for learners and staff, with excellent links to public transport and local facilities.
