Cardiff Metropolitan University Welcomes Coleg Cymraeg Posts and Provision

14 September 2015
Once again this year, the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol has funded more lecturers to teach in various fields at universities across Wales.

As a result, Welsh medium provision will develop at Cardiff Metropolitan University in subjects such as Speech and Language Therapy and Art and Design.

Rhonwen Lewis from Blaenau Ffestiniog, who has been appointed Speech and Language Therapy Lecturer at the university is eager to start teaching and researching:

‘‘Within my field, the need to develop graduates who have the skills and confidence to work through the medium of Welsh is vital in order to provide an equitable service for individuals who are facing speech, language and/or communication difficulties across Wales.’’

Huw Williams from Cardiff has been awarded an Art and Design lectureship and his aim is to enrich the students’ experience by creating a wide range of modules which will enable them to continue with their Art and Design studies through the medium of Welsh.

Dr Ioan Matthews, Chief Executive of the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol said:

‘‘We were glad to be able to support these appointments and look forward to seeing more students studying subjects through Welsh as a result of the Coleg’s investment. I would like to wish them all well as they create resources and recruit perspective students over the years to come.’’
