B#EPIC: Be Employable, Purposeful, Inspired, Challenged 

 

At Cardiff and Vale College we want to equip you with the knowledge and skills that will take you into your dream career. We will help you to develop inventiveness, creativity and business confidence and will also support you by nurturing your ambition, innovation and entrepreneurial mindset.

To do this we have B#EPIC which provides Enterprise, Enrichment and Employability opportunities.

 

Entrepreneurship

 

We are here to support the next generation of entrepreneurs. Be inspired by others, learn about business, develop your ideas and we can help you take the first step to being your own boss.

 

We are supported by the Welsh Government Youth Entrepreneurship Strategy which aims to provide all learners with an opportunity to develop their entrepreneurial skills.

 

At City Centre Campus we have a space for you to come and talk to us about your business ideas. It’s called the Ideas Centre; here we offer a package of support providing students with start-up advice, mentoring, workshops, desk space and more.

Enrichment

 

Enrichment gives you the chance to have fun whilst you learn. You can take part in lots of different activities such as debate club, code club, dance, outdoor activities and much more.

 

We also organise lots of different events which not only develop your employability skills but also introduce you to leading industry experts.

Students can also access dedicated support to set up a club, society or project. In previous years students have led Welsh, British Sign Language and Code Clubs.
