Consultation on major education shake-up in Blaenau Gwent

Consultations on the vision to transform education, learning, skills and training in Blaenau Gwent with the new ‘Learning Works’ programme at The Works:Ebbw Vale are underway.

A series of meetings for parents of all pupils from three to 16 years old is being held at all six comprehensive schools and at other local schools right across
Blaenau Gwent.

‘Learning Works’ proposals include new buildings for primary and secondary education, a new replacement special school, a new integrated children’s centre, a sports centre and a performing arts centre. It also includes the ‘Learning Zone’ – an integrated learning centre that could provide both vocational and academic education, training and skills for anyone aged 16 and over.

Coun Steve Bard,
Blaenau Gwent Council Executive Member for Education, said

Blaenau Gwent’s vision is to transform education, learning, skills and training for all our children and young people in the Heads of the Valleys.

“We are listening – we want views on how to achieve our ambitions for education in Blaenau Gwent and to set out how ‘Learning Works’ can best provide the new and modern facilities that we need for our young people.”
