Our policies to promote and facilitate the use of Welsh.

Welsh Language Strategy

We have published a new strategy for the promotion and facilitation of the use of Welsh language. It has been prepared in accordance with Section 78 of the Government of Wales Act 2006.

The Government's vision is to see the Welsh language thriving in Wales. To achieve that, the strategy aims to see an increase in the number of people who both speak and use the language.

Welsh-medium Education Strategy

This strategy is a historic milestone in Welsh-medium education. It sets the direction for making improvements in the teaching and learning of Welsh, including Welsh second language.

Welsh Language Scheme

Our Welsh Language Scheme explains how we will provide our services to the public in both Welsh and English, and how we will mainstream the Welsh language into our work across all departments.

Our revised scheme and its new action plan was approved by the Welsh Language Board on 29 March 2011.
