Coleg Cambria, the college that will be formed following the merger of Deeside College and Yale College Wrexham on the 1st August 2013, has unveiled the logo concept for the college.
With 50 days to go until the two , the college has presented the “Spectrum” as the logo for the New College.
The Spectrum design has been developed and chosen with support from students, staff, Governors and local businesses and signifies the diversity and inclusivity of the new college. Coleg Cambria will be one of the biggest further education colleges in the UK and will support over 7000 full time learners and over 20000 part time learners. It will offer one of the widest curriculum portfolios of any college in Wales and teach programmes from pre entry level to Level 7.
The spectrum represents the breadth and depth of education, courses and skills provided by Coleg Cambria to a diverse and varied range of students and learners. It also stands as a ‘beacon’, representing the college as a shining example of quality, excellence and success. The spectrum mark also forms an abstract letter ‘C’.
Principal Designate of Coleg Cambria David Jones said “ Our new identity is an important milestone for further education in North East Wales. It reflects the successes we have achieved separately and the success we plan to achieve as one college.
Support for all learners is our core strength and we wanted to express this inclusive approach in our choice of branding. I am delighted that we have been able to involve students, staff and governors of both Yale and Deeside along with some local employers in developing the concept.”
