Commissioner gives compliance notices to colleges, universities and education organisations

The Welsh Language Commissioner has given a notice to 25 colleges, universities and education organisations in Wales which notes which Welsh language standards they will be expected to comply with and by when.
In giving the compliance notices to organisations, the Welsh Language Commissioner, Meri Huws, said:
"Placing standards is a significant step forward in establishing rights for generations of students to receive services through the medium of Welsh by their colleges and universities. The Welsh language provision will also be more consistent across Wales and it will be more clear to people what Welsh language services will be available."
Welsh language standards regulations were drafted by the Welsh Government and passed by the National Assembly on 31 January 2017.
The Commissioner consulted with the organisations concerned on draft compliance notices between 9 June and 4 August 2017. They will be expected to start to comply with the standards from 1 April 2018. Their statutory Welsh language schemes, approved under the Welsh Language Act 1993, will be replaced by the language standards.
