Welsh in Education Strategic Plan

In December 1996, Gwynedd Council published a Welsh Language Plan in compliance with the requirements of the 1993 Welsh Language Act. It was approved by the Welsh Language Board, and it mentions how the Council, in its dealings with the public, gives equal status to the Welsh and English Language.

Under Part 1 and Part 2 of the 1993 Welsh Language Act, the LA was required to provide a Welsh Language Plan that specifically dealt with Education [Welsh Education Plan].  Gwynedd Council’s initial Welsh Education Plan was approved in November 1998. Following the three year implementation of the Welsh Education Plan, a second Plan was prepared that was approved in August 2004.  The Plan was reviewed in 2010 and this Welsh Education Plan was approved by the Welsh Language Board on 30 June 2011. Following this, the Welsh in Education Strategy Plan for 2014-17 was drawn up and approved.
