Chris Elmore MP congratulated Bridgend College on its Further Education Beacon Award in Parliament this week. The college, which has campuses in Pencoed and Maesteg as well as Bridgend, won their third Beacon award.
The MP used business questions in the House of Commons to ask the government to join him in congratulating the college and asked for a debate to discuss and highlight the importance of colleges to our communities.
The MP said: “It’s not only important to our communities but in allowing anyone, of any age, the opportunity to learn and succeed; colleges are a pillar in our education system. With Bridgend College, we have a sector leader.” The leader of the house joined the Ogmore MP in congratulating the college.
