Welcome to Derwen College’s Marketplace
What is Derwen Marketplace?
Derwen Marketplace is an unique setting where Derwen College students undertake work placements in a range of customer facing outlets to gain vocational work skills.
You can directly support our students’ learning by visiting Derwen’s Marketplace in Gobowen.
By undertaking work placements here (in our restaurant, cafes, charity shop, hotel and garden centre), students learn key skills through real-life experience.
In our latest inspection report, Ofsted said:
Leaders prepare realistic work placements for learners within the college campuses. For example, learners will work in the Garden Café, The Vintage Advantage charity shop, Hotel 751 and the extensive gardens. Learners develop industry-standard skills, which help them to find employment on leaving the college.
This is only possible through your support.
