“Learner Ambassadors share Christmas spirit with charitable donations”
Morthyng Vocational College learners joined together to collect over 400 Christmas gifts which were distributed to Children’s Hospital Wards and voluntary sector organisations in towns where Morthyng operates.

Mitchell Fitzpatrick started on programme with Morthyng Vocational College in October 2019 and progressed into full-time employment with West-Siphonics.
When Mitchell started he had low confidence and self-esteem which was clearly having an impact on him securing employment. Over the past 2 years Mitchell has developed his employability skills, literacy and numeracy which has led to his confidence improving immensely.
Mitchell stated “without the support of college he would never have attended the interview and secured the position at West Siphonics” Mitchell is doing really well where he is doing fabricating and making outlets. Mitchell is contracted to work 8.30am whilst 4.30pm, however, he opts to go in at 7am to get on with his work that he has been assigned for the day.
These three words could save your life: Run, Hide, Tell
Firearms and weapon attacks are rare but all communities - including learners and staff at Morthyng Group Limited - need to be prepared.
If you should get caught up in an incident, our advice is simple:
Run, Hide, Tell.
Run to a place of safety
. This is a far better option than to surrender or negotiate. If there is nowhere to go then...
Hide, it’s better than to confront
. Remember to turn your phone to silent and turn off vibrate. Barricade yourself in if you can. Then finally, and only when it is safe to do so…
Tell the police
by calling 999.
Moira MacCormac (safeguarding lead) says: “No one wants to think about anything bad happening at Morthyng Group Limited but it makes total sense to be prepared. Read the advice, hope you never have to use it but know that if the worst ever happens you will be prepared and know what to do.”
The UK’s Senior National Coordinator for Protective Security, Deputy Assistant Commissioner Lucy D'Orsi, adds: “There is no specific intelligence to say colleges and universities are being targeted and the chances of being caught up in a terrorist incident or weapons attacks are still low. But sadly we have seen lethal assaults carried out by people with a variety of deadly motives. So it is important everyone stays alert and knows what to do if the worst was to happen.”
