Training in Welsh
You can follow many workplace training courses or apprenticeships through the medium of Welsh and the best place to look is the website of National Training Federation Wales.
This is the body that represents all the organisations and individuals involved in the training industry across all sectors. The Federation has over 100 members, from small companies to large, national organisations, as well as local authorities, higher education establishments and charities.
The Federation is helping its members extend their Welsh language and bilingual provision. As courses are often tailored for the customer, the most important thing to do if you want training in Welsh is to ask what’s available or have a look at its website where there is a full list of members.
