Work Welsh FE

ColegauCymru coordinate the Work Welsh FE project for the Further Education sector with funding from the National Centre for Learning Welsh.

The aim of the project is to develop the Welsh skills of lecturers in Further Education Colleges. Our aim is to work with a minimum of 210 lecturers in further education across Wales with every individual completing 120 hours of Welsh. For the purpose of this project and in order to achieve our larger objective of increasing Welsh medium provision in the sector, we are asking that 80% of those following the project in the Colleges are academic staff therefore lecturers or assessors.

This project is appropriate for every level, with classes and language tutors available to assist those who are new learners, lacking confidence or fluent to use more Welsh in the workplace. Although the overall aim is the same, the project will vary between Colleges as the nature of the project allows Colleges to adapt it to suit their individual and specific needs.

If you work in a Further Education College in Wales, take advantage of the opportunity to be part of this project by contacting the Human Resources department or the Bilingual Champion at the College.
