Teleri Wilson

Originally from Pontfaen, Fishguard, Teleri studied her three-year degree course through the medium of Welsh. Before commencing her studies at the University, Teleri won the William Salesbury scholarship worth £5000 from the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol – an award that’s given to a student studying 100% of their course through the medium of Welsh.

Teleri has been very active student throughout her three years at University, especially within Y Gymdeithas Gymraeg (the Welsh Society), helping to promote the Welsh language and culture. Teleri’s also very active within her community and is a keen member of Fishguard Young Farmers Club. This year, Teleri has also been successful in obtaining the Welsh Language Skills Certificate from the Coleg Cymreag Cenedlaethiol and will be presented with a certificate during a ceremony at this year’s National Eisteddfod in Llanrwst.

Reflecting on her three years here at UWTSD, Teleri said “Graduating today is the highlight on a fantastic three years here at UWTSD. I have thoroughly enjoyed the course, have made friends for life, and have had excellent experiences especially whilst completing teaching placements in different schools. As I received my primary and secondary education through the medium of Welsh, it was a natural step for me to continue with my studies in Welsh.”  

After receiving her education at Llanychllwydog Primary School and Ysgol y Preseli, Teleri’s excited about being able to stay in her local area after accepting her first teaching job at Ysgol Caer Elen, Haverfordwest.

“I’m very much looking forward to start my first teaching job in a new Welsh school in Pembrokeshire, Caer Elen, and to being able to teach the pupils of the county through the medium of Welsh. It’s a brand new school, and it’s an exciting time as the demand for Welsh-medium education is on the rise within the county.”
