Review of the Welsh-language Sabbatical Scheme for educational practitioners: participant experiences 2011-2012
Release date: 27 January 2014
This report presents the findings of a review carried out as part of a wider evaluation of the Welsh-medium Education Strategy, which is being undertaken by Arad Consulting.
The purpose of the review was to ‘examine the impact of the Sabbatical Scheme on the participants’ teaching after returning to their employment’. The study was also intended to make recommendations for methods of future analysis of impact and ‘examine the role of local authorities in ensuring that participants are supported after returning to their employment’.
The review has found a positive view of the Sabbatical Scheme among participants and stakeholders. The vast majority of participants report positively on the progress made in relation to their language skills, confidence, and their use of Welsh after returning to their school or college. The evidence provided by respondents indicates that post-course support to maintain and develops skills further needs to be strengthened. The review also found that further work is needed to improve the strategic development of the Scheme.
