About

The e-sgol project is based on the e-sgoil project in Scotland. Following visits by Welsh Government and Ceredigion officials in 2016 and 2017 it was decided to trial a similar project in Wales. Ceredigion Council were given the mantle of piloting the first year of the project. In this first year, the following projects were offered:

A Level Further Mathematics taught at Bro Pedr

A Level Drama taught at Bro Teifi

GCSE Music taught at Aberaeron

In the first year, the project launch happened at Bro Pedr with Kirsty Williams officially opening the project:
