ColegauCymru has welcomed today's statement from the Minister for Education with regards to the additional funding of more than £50 million for universities and colleges.

ColegauCymru Chair and Chief Executive of Grŵp Llandrillo Menai, Dafydd Evans said, 

"We are encouraged by this recent announcement which will allow further education institutions to plan for the safe return of learners to face-to-face provision from September. We recognise the many challenges faced by Welsh Government at this time and acknowledge the support received from across government".

ColegauCymru Chief Executive Iestyn Davies added,

"Whilst we warmly welcome today's announcement, questions still remain about the practicalities of how all further education learners can safely return to education from September. This is especially important for the many students aged 19 and above where the science tells us that they need to be treated as adults".

ColegauCymru is committed to working together with our member colleges and Welsh Government colleagues to reach a solution at the earliest opportunity.
