The National Centre for Learning Welsh


The National Centre for Learning Welsh is responsible for all aspects of the Welsh for Adults education programme - from curriculum and course development to resources for tutors, research, marketing and e-learning.

The Centre was established in response to the report Raising our sights: review of Welsh for Adults, published in July 2013.

Its aim is to attract new learners to the Welsh language and increase the numbers using and enjoying Welsh each day.

The National Centre operates at arm's length from Welsh Government, which funds it, and is part of the University of Wales Trinity Saint David group.

The National Centre works with a network of 11 providers across Wales, which deliver Welsh courses on its behalf.
