Moira Lockitt (Director) said:

Gwynt y Mor‘With the support of the Gwynt y Môr Community Fund G2G Communities CIC was able to develop two new qualifications to ensure that not only did pupils and adults experience 3D Printing and Recycling at the centre in Rhyl but they also gained a recognised qualification’.

‘Although G2G Communities CIC produced the qualifications they are available on the AGORED/CQFW framework for any organisation to download and deliver’.

‘The qualifications have proved very successful and we anticipate an increase in the number delivered during 2018/19’.

Dr William Lockitt (Director) said:

‘It seemed a pity that pupils and adults were undertaking the 3D printing and Recycling training at G2G Communities CIC but there was no recognised qualification to support it’. ‘I contacted AGORED and they were extremely positive and supportive’.

‘AGORED qualifications are recognised by industry and education so the pupils and adults gaining them will be able to take advantage in what is becoming a growth industry’.

‘The recycling of plastic waste in particular is an industry set for expansion in the future and our learners will be able to take advantage of the employment opportunities associated with it’.
