Mae’r rhan fwyaf o’r Practisiau Hyfforddiant Sylfaenol wedi eu lleoli yng Nghaerdydd a’r cyffiniau. Mae Caerdydd yn cynnig amrywiaeth eang o gyfleoedd o ran chwaraeon rhyngwladol a diwylliant ac mae’n ddinas fywiog a hardd sy’n cynnig rhywbeth i bawb. O gyffro bywyd cyffrous dinas i heddwch a llonyddwch yr arfordir a chefn gwlad, mae Parc Cenedlaethol deniadol Bannau Brycheiniog o fewn pellter cyfleus. Caerdydd yw cartref Stadiwm y Mileniwm a llawer o adeiladau deddfwriaethol. Mae’n ddinas sy’n meddu ar dreftadaeth ac uchelgais ac mae ganddi gysylltiadau ffyrdd, rheilffyrdd a meysydd awyr rhagorol. Mae llawer o hyfforddeion, ar ôl cwblhau eu blwyddyn hyfforddi, yn hapus i setlo yn yr ardal.

The majority of the Foundation Training Practices are based in or around Cardiff. Cardiff boasts a wide range of cultural and international sporting opportunities and is a lively, elegant city catering for all tastes. From the excitement of a vibrant city life to the peace and tranquillity of the nearby coast and countryside, the attractive Brecon Beacons National Park is conveniently close. Cardiff is the home to the Millennium Stadium and many legislative buildings. It is a city with both heritage and ambition and benefits from excellent road, rail and airport links. Many trainees upon completion of their training year are happy to settle within the area.
