“For the first time in his life he is applying his energy and mind to really meaningful practical tasks- that at school he never had the opportunity to do”
Coleg Elidyr is a residential Camphill Community College providing further education and training for young people aged 18-25 with learning difficulties and disabilities. Founded in 1973, Coleg Elidyr has many years’ experience of working with young people with a wide range of learning difficulties and disabilities, behavioural and emotional difficulties and autistic spectrum conditions.
“When our son started at Coleg Elidyr we felt we had reached our limits, we needed help to move him forward – well – we got it! He has achieved so much this year, far more than we could ever have imagined”
Coleg Elidyr provides a safe learning environment set within 180 acres of farmland in the secluded Towy Valley. As well as learning crafts in workshops and retail in our on-site shop, there are land-based opportunities on our working farm, garden and forestry. Our curriculum is inspired by the philosophy of Rudolf Steiner and designed to enable the learner to move from doing to understanding and from experience to knowing.
