Strategic Plan 2022-2027

Gwella dyfodol pobl

Improving people's futures


We are pleased to introduce to you Grŵp Llandrillo Menai's five-year plan, to 2027, which consists of five key themes. Our new plan builds on the Grŵp’s success to date by incorporating the learning from the challenges of the pandemic, providing a strong focus on environmental issues and truly promoting innovation. We are committed to being the leading Further Education provider in Wales and beyond.

Our mission of 'Improving People's Futures' captures what we are about as a further education organisation. Although delivering successful qualifications is essential to us, we also make a significant impact on social cohesion and economic development. We aim to be at the heart of our communities and to be the skills engine that drives the success of North Wales.

Key to meeting our objectives is partnership working with both the private and public sector. Our ambitious capital investment plan will aim to provide state of the art resources, however our priority will be investing in our staff to be sector leading as they are the linchpin to the success of each priority theme.

We hope you enjoy exploring our new “mini-website” which outlines our priorities under each key theme, some key performance indicators and evidence of how we are delivering on our plan.
