Monmouthshire Community Learning programme receives glowing report

MONMOUTHSHIRE County Council’s Community Learning programme, which is part of the Greater Gwent Adult Learning Partnership, led by Coleg Gwent, received a glowing commendation after a recent Estyn inspection.

The council’s Community Learning programme offers a variety of opportunities for residents to learn new skills and build on existing ones.

Here in Monmouthshire, we have five Community Learning centres across the county, with various courses available. These include courses in Mathematics, English, IT, Arts & Crafts and English for learners.

Estyn, Wales’ education inspectorate, recently visited the partnership. The final report highlighted the transformative impact the partnerships’ work has on learners and the community.

Estyn’s report highlighted the profound impact of our programme on learners’ lives. When interviewed by inspectors, many learners shared heartfelt testimonials about how the programme has been a lifeline, especially during challenging circumstances. It has also boosted their confidence in developing digital skills.

A vital aspect of any Community Programme is the tutors. Estyn’s report praised the tutors’ dedication to creating an inclusive learning environment. The Community Learning team in Monmouthshire is dedicated to providing the best support to all learners. They aim to create an environment that will allow learners to improve their health and well-being while at the same time providing them with a place to learn and upskill their knowledge.

Our dedicated team has also been praised for its collaborative work in continuous improvement. The partnership was praised for its robust self-evaluation and quality improvement planning. All staff will carefully analyse all learners’ assessment data, monitor progress and provide opportunities for feedback throughout the learners’ journey.

Monmouthshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education, Cllr Martyn Groucutt, said: “The Estyn report reflects the hard work and dedication our Community Learning programme officers carry out daily. I want to thank them all for their hard work. Every day, they provide opportunities for learners from Monmouthshire to learn new skills or upskill themselves in many topics. Education doesn’t stop in the classroom. If you want to learn new skills, please look at our Community Learning pages on the website for the latest course.”

As we celebrated the achievements of the council’s Community Learning programme as part of the Greater Gwent Adult Learning Partnership, led by Coleg Gwent, we also acknowledge the hard work and dedication of the learners. Their hard work allows our officers to continue to improve and provide new courses throughout the year.
