Students from Coleg Cambria are celebrating after winning awards once again at Lantra’s Land-based Learner of the Year Awards 2017.
Five students were nominated from the college which resulted in Forestry student Edd Ingham, from Ruthin, and Animal Management student Angharad Roberts, from Abergele, both being awarded the Lantra Lifelong Learner Award after being nominated by Cambria staff.
The Land-based Learner of the Year Awards, held during this year’s Winter Fair at Builth Wells, recognised and celebrated the success of learners in Wales’ land-based and environmental industries.
Winner Angharad said: “Coleg Cambria was instrumental in my return to education as they provided the course and the support I wanted as an adult learner. The course is fabulous and I am thoroughly enjoying it.”
Head of Llysfasi, Iain Clarke said: “Both Edd and Angharad have done exceptionally well, having been nominated by staff at Llysfasi. They have both come through a robust interview process and have excelled in their studies and interview, competing against students from other land-based colleges.
“The calibre of this year’s entries was strong and Edd and Angharad have worked extremely hard to gain this prestigious accolade.”
This year’s awards were sponsored by several key industry bodies including FUW, NRW and the NFU Cymru.
