A student from Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor's Glynllifon campus has been named Wales' learner of the year by a national awards body.

Fin Wilson, aged 20, of Llangefni, was given the Young Learner of the Year award for 2018 by training and courses organisation Lantra at the Royal Welsh Winter Fair in Builth Wells.

Fin was presented with the award in the Animal Health and Welfare, Horticulture and Environmental category of Lantra's 2018 Land-based Learner of the Year Awards.

His tutor, Jeff Jones, who is countryside management and forestry coordinator at Glynllifon, said:

This is a fantastic achievement and Fin should be very proud.

It was a great feeling to see Fin, who has put a lot of time and effort studying at Glynllifon, being rewarded for his hard work.

He deserved to win because of his interest, enthusiasm and motivation while studying.

He takes part in all aspects of the course and educational tours to improve his understanding of the industry.

Lantra says it awards the Young Learner of the Year prize to those who are developing a career within the environmental and land-based industries and have shown a commitment to vocational education and training since leaving school.
