About Glynneath Training Centre
Glynneath Training Centre is a Community Learning and Volunteering Centre in Glynneath in the Upper Neath Valley. We are a small independent charity established in 1985 and we work in partnership with colleges, universities and over 40 helpful services and agencies to bring essential resources to our community.
We are a “Second Chance Centre,” a supportive local space, where people can make friends, gain purpose, enjoy learning, gain confidence and move forward to positive outcomes such as qualifications, volunteering, jobs, personal growth and well-being. We also offer community based services, including our Centre for Learning / Volunteering, Community Information Centre, Rompers Day Nursery and Rheola Walled Garden as well as running other environmental initiatives.
