The seven outcomes cover areas including provision, standards of Welsh first language and Welsh second language including opportunities for learners to use Welsh socially, and workforce training and development.

The plan will be discussed by members of the Executive Board at their monthly meeting on Tuesday, July 11.

Once approved, the draft plan will be subject to change following feedback from the Welsh Government.

Cllr Phil Wynn, Lead Member for Education, said: “The Welsh in Education Strategic Plan (WESP) is a far-ranging and ambitious document, which sets out our visions and objectives as we continue to deliver and provide for Welsh language education.

“As the vision outlined within the WESP states, we want to enable all children and young people to be confident bilingual speakers through education provision, and to be able to live, work and socialise through the medium of Welsh.

“We aim to increase capacity for Welsh medium places within our schools, with an additional further 401 spaces to be developed across the county borough.

“We want to support learners, at all levels, to develop their Welsh language skills so they can converse and work bilingually confidently and comfortably.

“Work on the WESP has been undertaken through continued consultation with a number of stakeholders and partner organisations, and I would like to thank all of them for the work they’ve put in to its drafting.”
