These are exciting times for Deeside College, one of Wales’ leading Further Education colleges. On August 1, 2009, Deeside College and the Welsh College of Horticulture in Northop merged to become one of the largest Further Education establishments in Wales.
The newly formed college is looking to build on the success of Deeside College which in 2007 received two outstanding Estyn inspection reports, and became the first in Wales to achieve the highest possible grade 1 ratings for all aspects of its Further Education and Work Based Learning provision.
