Confidence Building Short Courses
A recent study found that a substantial percentage of those who can use Welsh don't use their skills due to a lack of confidence. The aim of the Confidence Building Courses, that are new for the Work Welsh 2021-22 scheme, is to change core habits and raise the confidence of reluctant speakers so that they use Welsh when they would usually use English. This new type of course will include sessions that introduce 12 initial contact hours. The tutor will agree on an individual action plan with each course attendee, to be completed by the following session. By concentrating on confidence building with regards to certain tasks, e.g. email composition, or specific meeting or committee preparation, the sessions will compel the use of Welsh in the workplace.
This type of course is available to employers that support a high number of learners to learn Welsh through the Work Welsh Scheme.
