Report by an Assembly committee a step forward to broaden the use of the Welsh language in the work-based learning sector

​In response to the National Assembly's Economy, Infrastructure and Skills Committee report Apprenticeships in Wales published today (14 February 2018), the Welsh Language Commissioner, Meri Huws, said:

“I welcome the report. The Committee makes specific recommendations with regard to the Welsh language, which correspond to concerns raised in a briefing note I published on the subject last November.
 
"The report calls on the Welsh Government to act urgently to ensure that there is a sufficient number of Welsh speaking trainers, and to set a target for the number of Welsh-medium apprenticeships.  It also mentions another concern that we raised, regarding the lack of data that is available.
 
"I believe that this is a positive step to broaden the use of the Welsh language in the work-based learning sector, and to develop a skilled bi-lingual workforce in Wales.”
