Welsh in Education Strategic Plan (2017-2020)

Imagine a town where you would be confident and comfortable speaking both Welsh and English in day to day life, at work or socialising with your friends so that the Welsh language is a natural part of life.

Wrexham County Borough Council is aiming to allow all children and young people to be able to do this and be part of a modern bilingual Wales and supporting the Welsh Government’s aim to have a million Welsh speakers by 2050.

Being able to speak two languages has many advantages. More and more businesses in Wales are looking to employ people that can speak both languages and bilingual people in Wales can earn between 8% and 10% more annually compared to people who speak only one language. Speaking two languages opens the door to a more varied world of work and social life. Two languages, double the choice!

That’s why we want to know what you think about our Welsh in Education Strategic Plan for the next three years. Comments can be sent to CSGA.WESP@wrexham.gov.uk. We want to know what you think about the points below…
