If you work in the education sector in Wales, there’s a great choice of Welsh courses for you.


Welsh courses for the education workforce - including teaching and all non-teaching staff - are fully-funded.

There's a wide choice, including courses tailored for the education workforce, different learning methods, including self-study, and an opportunity to join community-based courses.

Courses are suitable for:
  • Qualified teachers in, or searching for, employment.
  • Newly qualified teachers searching for employment.
  • Supply teachers.
  • Individuals currently training to be a qualified teacher.
  • Teaching Assistants currently in employment.
  • Leaders.
  • Advisory teachers.
  • Non-teaching staff.

If you work in Further and Higher Education, we have a separate scheme that funds Learn Welsh courses for this sector.

Learn Welsh Levels

Courses are available at different learning levels, from beginners to experienced learners and Welsh speakers:

Entry: This level introduces basic language patterns, including present, past and future tenses, and everyday words and phrases.  If you’re new to Welsh, then you can start here.

Foundation: If you have a basic understanding of Welsh and are confident using present, past and future tenses, then try this level. You’ll get to discuss everyday subjects such as friends, family, work and hobbies.

Intermediate: This level is for those who are familiar with the key language patterns of Welsh. You’ll enjoy developing your speaking skills with a little more writing, reading and listening.

Advanced: With this level, the focus is on developing your spoken Welsh, with opportunities to discuss all kinds of subjects. You’ll also get to improve your reading, writing and listening skills.

Proficient: This level is for fluent learners and Welsh speakers who wish to build confidence to use and enjoy their language skills, whether spoken or written Welsh.

Further details are available in the Language competency framework for education practitioners

What our learners say

Anna Secondary Teacher, October 2022
For the first time ever I am feeling okay about actually trying to speak it! I am using more Welsh words and phrases in the classroom and encourage my students to do the same.
Perla Teaching Assistant, October 2022
As a TA and working in a school environment it allows me to participate in the children’s Welsh learning journey.
