Coleg Plas Dwbl offers a rich and varied curriculum offers exciting opportunities to develop communication, social, work and living skills. Activities include practical land-based and traditional craft activities, animal husbandry, forestry, horticulture, catering and drama with social, communication and functional skills embedded throughout the day and residential curriculum.
Students help to work the 100-acre biodynamic farm producing, harvesting and preparing healthy organic food, and supplying local outlets. The college also offers a range of arts and crafts that include working directly with craftspeople in their workshops, as well as a unique opportunity to interact with the surrounding Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Courses are accredited through the Regulated Qualifications Framework and students will also prepare for work competency through a wide range of internal and external work experience. Qualifications include Agored Cymru, LANTRA Awards and the Welsh Baccalaureate.
The curriculum is also supported by additional sessions and activities which help students to understand and explore the culture and history of the area and try local crafts. Throughout their placement, students are supported by staff to focus on transition and engage with the many transferable skills acquired to prepare for life after college.
In residential provision, students live in family houses or team houses and when appropriate, students can then progress to placements in training flats.
