Creating a dual sector university
The University is working with Swansea Metropolitan University, Coleg Sir Gâr, Pembrokeshire College and Coleg Ceredigion to create a dual sector university.
This means that the institutions will work as a group within south-west Wales to provide enhanced progression routes and choices for a diverse community of learners as well as programmes of study that respond to the needs of employers.
SWW Centre for Teacher Education
As part of national developments in the field of initial teacher education and training, the University and Swansea Metropolitan University have established the South-West Wales Centre for Teacher Education.
This centre works closely with partner schools across west and South Wales to provide a variety of accredited programmes to trainee teachers and experienced teachers alike.
The University of Wales Trinity Saint David is responsible for the BA Primary Education with QTS programme whilst Swansea Metropolitan University is responsible for the PGCE Primary programme. Both universities offer a wide range of professional development opportunities including postgraduate programmes for qualified teachers and those involved in education and training.
The Regional Learning Partnership South West Wales (RLPSWW)
The Regional Learning Partnership South West Wales (RLPSWW) is a transformational partnership bringing education and regeneration partners together to help provide a better future for learners and potential learners across the South West Wales region.
The University’s Carmarthen campus is the oldest provider of teacher training courses in Wales and has a well established tradition in the field of education. Our students benefit from our experience and extensive links with a broad range of organisations.
We have partnership arrangements with over 250 primary schools and 30 secondary schools.
We work closely with many organisations that are concerned with education and the development of the individual, including family centres, community centres, day nurseries, sports organisations, the prison service and several organisations overseas.
