A warm welcome to the Cymraeg page.
Here, you will find professional learning opportunities, information and guidance, valuable Welsh language resources and information about Welsh at the Central South Consortium (CSC).
CSC is committed to promoting the Welsh language and to supporting all schools across the region to develop all aspects of Welsh.
The Welsh language belongs to us all!
'Cymraeg 2050: A million Welsh speakers' sets out our ambition to create one million Welsh speakers by 2050. It includes targets to increase the number of teachers eligible to teach Welsh as a subject and other subjects through the medium of Welsh.
It also outlines the vision for developing the Welsh language skills of all learners aged 3 to 16 as part of the Curriculum for Wales to enable them to use the language in everyday contexts.
The year 2050: The Welsh language is thriving, the number of speakers has reached a million, and it is used in every aspect of life. Among those who do not speak Welsh there is goodwill and a sense of ownership towards the language and a recognition by all of its contribution to the culture, society and economy of Wales.- Cymraeg 2050 – A million Welsh speakers (Welsh Government 2017, p.4)
