In August 2013, The College Ystrad Mynach and Coleg Morgannwg merged to become Coleg y Cymoedd which means college of the valleys.
The College Ystrad Mynach served the Caerphilly County Borough with sites in Abertridwr, Bargoed, Blackwood, Caerphilly, Rhymney and Ystrad Mynach.
Coleg Morgannwg served the Rhondda Cynon Taff County with sites in Aberdare, Nantgarw, and Rhondda.
By joining together, Coleg y Cymoedd is now one of the largest further education providers in Wales with an estimated 20,000 learners choosing to study and over 1000 members of staff.
With campus sites in Aberdare, Nantgarw, Rhondda and Ystrad Mynach we are the first choice for further education in Caerphilly County and Rhondda Cynon Taff.
