What is Cynnydd?
The Cynnydd Project provides a range of engagement, learning and training activities for 11 – 24 year olds in order to reduce the number of young people who are at risk of becoming NEET (Not in Employment, Education or Training).
Who is Cynnydd for?
Within the College, Cynnydd is aimed at further education learners who are at risk of becoming NEET i.e. they are currently enrolled on a programme of study but have been identified as at risk of leaving education.
