Midwives share their experiences with Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor Health and Care students

Ceris Wyn and Jemma Durant, both working as midwives at Ysbyty Gwynedd Bangor, recently visited Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor’s Pwllheli campus to share their experiences with the college's Health and Social Care students.

Originally from Blaenau Ffestiniog, Ceris Wyn studied early-age education at Cardiff University before embarking on a midwifery course at Manchester University.

Jemma Durant came to the field a little later after a change in careers: she originally studied Hair and Beauty at Coleg Menai before working in the industry for 10 years. She then decided to take a new path in life, eventually gaining a place on the highly-contested midwifery course at Bangor University.

Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor Health and Social Care lecturer Kelly Kojs said: “Being able to get people who work in the health and care sector to come into college and talk to our students is very important to us as a department. Offering these kinds of opportunities opens up all kinds of doors and new possibilities for our students.

“The field of midwifery is very competitive, so getting the opportunity to share some of Ceris and Jemma’s knowledge and expertise was extremely important to our students who are hoping to follow the same path. We would like to thank them both for taking time out of their busy jobs to talk to our students.”
