Disability Statement

Coleg Harlech WEA (N) encourages applications from individuals who have difficulties or disabilities.
The institution's mission statement identifies the principle of inclusive education for all and the imperative of developing the full potential of all its learners.

It is acknowledged by the institution that due to the diverse nature of sites used that mobility problems may be encountered by those with physical disabilities in some instances, we will endeavour to meet a student's requirements including relocating the course if possible. After discussion between the student and the institution, if it is felt that the student’s needs cannot be met then they are counselled through to a more appropriate course or institution.
