“CWIC continues to support local and regional business across North Wales. During 2018 the CWIC North Wales Spoke at Coleg Cambria has supported local and regional civil and construction businesses with their training needs. Courses have been driven by the demand and needs of the employers. Some of which are very innovative. CWIC responds efficiently and effectively to these demands. It’s a model that works very well. It also supports and enhances partnerships between industry and education”.
