Welsh Language Scheme
Thursday, June 7, 2012
In accordance with the Welsh Language Act 1993, YMCA Wales Community College has prepared a voluntary Welsh Language Scheme which sets out how it proposes to deliver services to the public in Welsh.
YMCA Wales? Welsh Language Scheme received the approval of the Welsh Language Board under section 14 (1) of the Welsh Language Act on 26th March 2012.
YMCA Wales Community College (the College) has adopted the principle that in the conduct of public business in Wales, it will treat the English and Welsh languages on a basis of equality. This scheme sets out how the College will give effect to that principle when providing services to the public in Wales.
The College acknowledges its wider national responsibilities to promote a bilingual agenda, for example, training bilingual youth workers will support the National Youth Service Strategy as it „seeks to expand the number of places available for training of youth workers at all levels, including Welsh medium provision? (Welsh Government, 2007). The Wales Probation Trust (the Trust) launched its Welsh Language Scheme in August 2011 and the College acknowledges its responsibilities to support the Trust as it promotes bilingualism within its learning provision.
