Does the Welsh Government have a target for the number of 18 to 25 year olds enrolling on free-of-charge on courses with the National Centre for Learning Welsh?

Answered by Minister for Education and the Welsh Language | Answered on 22/03/2022

The Centre have set a target of attracting 2,500 learners aged 18-25 during 2022-23, and will revise this target annually as they plan the provision with their providers.

The National Centre for Learning Welsh are currently planning a marketing campaign over the summer to attract learners aged 18-25 to take advantage of the offer of free lessons.  Learners in this age group will be able to enrol on any community course across the range of levels available, or will be able to join in specific courses which are being created for this age group.

Delivering free Welsh lessons to 18-25 year olds is being carried out in collaboration with Cefin Campbell MS, the Plaid Cymru designated member, as part of the Co-operation Agreement between the Welsh Government and Plaid Cymru.
