£4 million funding package for Welsh language training, 16/08/10 [W]

Education Minister Leighton Andrews has announced a £4 million funding package to train early years Welsh medium practitioners.

The new money, which will support the roll out of the Foundation Phase, will run until March 2013.

Training will be delivered through Cam Wrth Gam, which operates under the umbrella of Mudiad Ysgolion Meithrin and Geiriau Bach, part of Trinity University College. Cam wrth Gam provides a comprehensive national support infrastructure for Welsh-medium early years’ practitioners, which is built around a work-based learning model. Geiriau Bach focuses on improving the Welsh language skills of early years practitioners.
