Councillors David Poole and Sean Morgan take a look at USW's crime scene house

TWO senior politicians from Caerphilly council have been shown around the educational facilities at the University of South Wales (USW).

During their visit, the authority’s Leader and Deputy Leader, Councillors David Poole and Sean Morgan, got to investigate a crime scene, treat a hospital patient, and land an airliner.

After spending time in the specialist Crime Scene House, and then seeing how forensic sciences students carry out criminal investigations, Mr Poole and Mr Morgan were then shown around USW’s dedicated Clinical Simulation Suite – where student nurses carry out training during their studies.

Then followed a visit to USW’s newly-expanded Aerospace Centre, where they saw the specialist aerospace engineering facilities and were able to try out the on-site flight simulator.

Caerphilly County Borough Council’s Leader Cllr Dave Poole said: “After visiting the impressive facility it is clear that the University of South Wales is a fantastic choice for those seeking a career in a huge range of sectors.

“It was great to see first-hand how successful partnership working can achieve positive outcomes, and the university is certainly a product of that.”

Professor Julie Lydon, USW Vice-Chancellor, added: “We are delighted that the two senior politicians were able to visit us, and see the fine work that we do here every day.  

“We pride ourselves on being the university for careers, giving students the right skills to prepare them for their chosen profession.

“They saw for themselves how we make a real difference by working with government and employers, and support individual graduates and communities within our region.”
