aboutIconBig[1].jpgSetting the Scene

Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council’s vision for Education and Lifelong Learning is to put learner’s interests first and offer wider access and opportunities for all, as set out in The Learning Country.  Increasing the participation in learning means enabling people to learn when they want, where they want. The Learning Country states that e-learning is a means to this end.

What is NPTLG?

The Neath Port Talbot Learning Gateway (NPTLG) has a mission to help deliver a culture of education that prepares young people to face the challenges of the 21st Century. Its primary function is to be addressing learners’ diverse learning styles, needs and interests through innovative use of information and communication technology (ICT) to support learning and teaching. The Learning Gateway is intended to integrate and streamline the different systems and technologies currently in use.
Teachers, pupils, parents and governors will benefit from improved communications through dedicated World Wide Web gateways. We will be able to offer more flexible opportunities for pupil learning by opening up resources outside normal school hours.
