Ein hymateb parhaus i Covid-19: Y Diweddaraf gan y Pennaeth Mark Jones (22 Medi)

Mae’r Pennaeth Mark Jones yn myfyrio ar ddechrau tymor yr hydref, gan ganmol myfyrwyr a staff am eu cydweithrediad, ac mae’n egluro sut mae’r Coleg yn parhau i sicrhau bod iechyd a diogelwch yn parhau i fod yn brif flaenoriaeth.

Wrth i ni ddechrau pedweredd wythnos y tymor, mae’n ymddangos yn amser da i fyfyrio ar sut mae pethau wedi mynd hyd yn hyn yng Ngholeg Gŵyr Abertawe.

Our continued response to Covid-19: Update from Principal Mark Jones (22 September)

Principal Mark Jones reflects on the start of the Autumn term, praising students and staff for their cooperation, and explaining how the College is continuing to ensure health and safety remains the top priority.

As we enter the fourth week of term, it seems a good time to reflect on how things have gone so far at Gower College Swansea.

Firstly, I want to say a huge thank you to all our students and staff for their cooperation as we navigate our way through an academic year that is very different to any we've known before. 

Update from Principal, Mark Jones (11 August)

We have now received the final part of the Welsh Government’s guidance that will allow the College to reopen at the beginning of September. 

Even though this guidance has been delayed, we have been working with Welsh Government colleagues throughout the summer and I am now pleased to be able to share our plans for September.

However, I do need to remind everyone of the College’s two key priorities as our plans are based on what we believe are the best means of achieving both of these.

Priority one

An updated message from Principal, Mark Jones: July

It is now three weeks since I last updated students, parents and guardians about how the College is preparing – initially for our return from lockdown and then for September – and a lot has happened during that time.

Firstly I‘m delighted to report that the College has now reopened albeit initially for around just 300 vocational students. This is to allow them to undertake any outstanding vocational assessments and, in doing so, to complete their course and support their progression.

Updated message to parents and guardians: May

Last week I wrote once again to all of our College students thanking them all for their continued engagement with their studies and their ongoing hard work.

I want to reassure you that the College continues to work with the range of examination bodies who validate the different courses we offer, to better understand how our students’ performance is to be assessed in these very different and challenging times.

Updated message to our students - May

It’s been three weeks since I last updated you on the progress the College is making on the range of challenges we are currently facing.

I would again wish to thank all of you for your continued engagement with your studies. Whilst staff are continuing to both teach and provide tutorial and pastoral support online, the response from you has been excellent and clearly will help prepare you for your next step, whatever that may be.
