We work with community groups, employers, trade unions, schools and colleges and other partners to make higher education accessible to all.

In the community

Our work in the community focuses on those who are traditionally under-represented in higher education, such as those living in Communities First areas, carers and disabled people. 

Colleagues working


We work with employers to provide flexible, accredited, solutions to enhancing skills and developing the workforce. We also have a longstanding relationship with trade unions across Wales to offer higher education to union members.
