Creative Solutions in Hard Times:
ColegauCymru Annual Conference 2015
Thursday 21 May 2015
at Venue Cymru, Llandudno
This year's conference focused on finding creative solutions in a difficult financial climate. New strategic business developments, potential partnerships, award winners, labour market intelligence, and an international perspective were a few of the highlights.
Delegates heard of teaching and learning improvements from a community college in Canada in the morning, before turning to the world of business in the afternoon.

There was an opportunity to explore creative solutions and discuss good practice in the eight workshops that straddled the middle of the day, each led by senior representatives from key stakeholders and colleges in Wales and beyond, with a number of case study sessions presented by organisations that have won prestigious awards.
We are particularly grateful to the conference sponsors for their support. They are:
- Welsh Government
