Working in partnership with over 1,000 employers, the college also offers many Apprenticeship and Traineeship opportunities with strong links to local employment and is officially a Roatp provider.
Positioned on the border of North East Wales, the college offers world-class facilities including a Centre of Excellence for Engineering, 1,000 acre farm and animal care centre. Notable successes in 2016 included the opening of the new 6th Form Centre and University Centre at Deeside site and new major estate developments at Bersham and Northop.
