“We are on hand to support and guide you and answer any questions you may have at this difficult time.
“The online sessions are also a chance to speak to lecturers and communicate with other students, which has already had a positive impact on the wellbeing of both the learners and our staff.”
She added: “It’s important – absolutely vital – that we keep talking and are there for each other over the coming weeks and months, and that Coleg Cambria is at the heart of that.”
