Nant Gwrtheyrn has been invited by the National Centre for Learning Welsh to deliver Welsh for Adults courses on its behalf. Nant Gwrtheyrn will be responsible for delivering a range of courses in for the Centre, a new national planning body responsible for all aspects of the Welsh for Adults education programme. Nant Gwrtheyrn is among 11 providers invited to deliver courses across Wales on the Centre’s behalf. The new structure, which comes into force on 1 August, builds on the important work undertaken previously by the six Welsh for Adults Centres. Efa Gruffudd Jones, Chief Executive of the National Centre for Learning Welsh, said: “This is the first time for a national planning body to take responsibility for the Welsh for Adults sector and our aim is clear – to deliver an inclusive service that welcomes and supports learners and new speakers of Welsh.
“I’m looking forward very much to working with committed providers and tutors across Wales as we coordinate provision, introduce new resources and provide a central point of contact for all information about learning Welsh.”
Mair Saunders, Manager at Nant Gwrtheyrn said:
“Nant Gwrtheyrn has significant experience of the Welsh for Adults sector as well as a detailed understanding of learners’ needs, and we are looking forward to working closely with the Centre.” An informal event to launch the National Centre for Learning Welsh will be held at 2pm on Saturday, 30 July at the Maes ‘D’ Learners’ Pavilion at the Monmouthisre and District National Eisteddfod.
