Why students love learning at Coleg Gwent!

It’s  ‘Love our Colleges Week’, so we’re introducing you to some of our learners and sharing their success and journey through college so far.

Meet Jesse Moody, 18, a Level 2 Mechanical Engineering student at our Crosskeys campus who is loving the practical aspects of the course in the workshops and in the future would like to have his own workshop working on small machinery.

“I grew up on a farm and was always fiddling around with machinery. I’ve always had an interest in engineering. All the staff and tutors are really helpful and treat you as an equal.

“I preferred the workshops at Coleg Gwent’s Crosskeys campus, compared to other colleges and feedback from friends who were already studying at Coleg Gwent was great.”

Jesse, who is currently on an apprenticeship with Doncasters, plans to move onto Level 3 and possibly an HND after completing Level 2.

“As I was home educated, I was really nervous about coming back to a college environment, but I settled in quickly,” he added.

As one of Wales’ top performing colleges, we’re proud of our diversity and outcomes and aim to offer something for everybody. Take a look and see what we have for you!
