Volunteering Opportunities for Employees and the Public
The College is working with Keep Wales Tidy (KWT) and is part of 184-strong Litter Picking Hubs across Wales to support activities on the ground in a sustainable way. Cleaning up our communities, the hubs which are based at Neath College, Brecon Beacons College and Newtown College offer all the equipment needed to carry out a safe clean-up. The kits include litter pickers, hi-vis vests and rubbish bags. Click the button below for more info on KWT projects.
In addition, the College has set up nature gardens on the Neath, Brecon Beacons and Newtown College sites, where fresh produce is being grown. The vegetable gardens will help supply the College kitchens. As well as the horticultural team and students, volunteers are needed to help support the project.
