What action is the Welsh Government taking to encourage people who have left formal education to learn Welsh?

Answered by Minister for Education and the Welsh Language | Answered on 21/03/2024

The National Centre for Learning Welsh provides opportunities for adults and young people over compulsory school age to learn Welsh.  It offers a wide choice of courses and resources to suit all levels and learning styles, varying from online self-study taster courses to intensive advanced level residential courses. £14.930 million is being invested in the National Centre for Learning Welsh for 2024-25.

We’ve also made it possible for all learners 16 – 25 to access free Welsh lessons through the National Centre and have extended the offer to the teaching workforce. 

Delivering free Welsh lessons to 16-25 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.
