Coleg Glynllifon Awarded Gold Standard from Royal Forestry Society

Coleg Glynllifon’s Forestry department has been awarded the gold standard from the Royal Forestry Society for its Forestry and Countryside course provision.

The Grŵp Llandrillo Menai site won the gold medal for “excellent educational provision” on its Forestry and Countryside Management courses (Levels 2 and 3).

The Royal Forestry Society Education and Learning Excellence Award recognises those who increase awareness, understanding and skills related to the environment, particularly forestry, and the link between trees and wood products.

The judging panel for the award stated: “The way the college is approached by the local community to engage students with their projects, and by employers seeking potential future employees straight from the college, demonstrates how highly thought of these courses are across the forestry, conservation, landscape and nursery sectors. Well done Coleg Glynliffon!”

Jeff Jones, lecturer on the Forestry and Countryside Management course at Glynllifon said: “The Forestry department at Glynllifon is extremely proud and honoured to receive this award. Coleg Glynllifon has a fantastic estate with a working farm and over 110 hectares of mixed woodland. Students take part in managing the woodland on a day-to-day basis, gaining valuable industry experience.

“Students are also given a wide range of practical activities. These range from using our static Mebor sawmill to process timber on the estate, through to using new technology such as Haglof mensuration equipment.

“Working with industry is an important part of the student experience. We appreciate the support we receive from local companies for providing valuable work experience placements and allowing student visits to learn about the forestry and countryside sector.”
