The Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol has recruited ambassadors with the aim of encouraging more prospective students to study part of their degree courses through Welsh. For the first time this year, the ambassadors were recruited following an interview as well as an application form.
The 25 ambassadors, located at seven universities across Wales, will start their work later on this month and will be responsible for completing various tasks throughout the year.
Their main role as ambassadors will be to persuade school pupils to follow part of their university studies through the medium of Welsh and champion the advantages this brings.
They will represent the Coleg Cymraeg at school visits, UCAS fairs and Eisteddfodau as well as record their experiences in an online blog and on various social media platforms.
Llais y Llysgennad will give a snapshot of the ambassadors’ lives through pictures, videos and much more. The Coleg Cymraeg blog can be found at http://blog.colegcymraeg.ac.uk and pictures of the ambassadors will be available on the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol’s website.
