Multi-million pound investment in future of Coleg Glynllifon

June 2023 | Rural policy

Coleg Glynllifon seeks to build on its recent successes and consolidate its position at the cutting-edge of agricultural learning and the rural economy with three projects, earmarked for development at its site near Caernarfon, representing a further investment of £16million in the region’s economy including delivery of the Glynllifon Rural Economy Hub, which forms part of the North Wales Growth Deal’s Agri-food and Tourism programme.

In addition to providing a massive boost to the north Wales economy, the money is also a significant investment in the educational future of its students. The new projects will provide a range of modern facilities to help nurture greater learning, entrepreneurship, innovation, knowledge transfer and enterprise development.

The announcement of this significant investment follows successes for the college, including its farm winning the best medium-sized Procross herd in the UK, by Viking Genetics, and the forestry department winning the Education and Learning Excellence Awards by the Royal Society of Forestry. Furthermore, the recent £2.1million capital programme to sympathetically repurpose farm buildings built in 1850 to become a sector leading animal care centre was recognised at the Green Apple Environment Awards in London, picking up a series of accolades, including a Gold award in the conversion projects category.
