Additional Funding for Welsh Medium Teacher Training, 28/3/07 [W]

Additional funding is to be provided to a scheme designed to help students who wish to teach through the medium of Welsh. The Welsh Medium Incentive Supplement (WMIS) provides grants to students to help raise their confidence and competence to enable them to teach in Welsh.  The additional funding will increase the level of the grant that they receive.  It will also provide new grants for maintained school who act as partner schools in providing language mentoring to trainees and grants for accredited institutions which support trainees with additional tutoring under the scheme.

Further information is available in the Assembly’s press release.
