Ceredigion County Council has the responsibility to prepare and carry out a Welsh Education Scheme under the Welsh Language Act 1993. The Welsh Education Scheme describes the policy and provision of Welsh-medium and bilingual education across the county and includes targets to maintain and expand the provision.
The current Scheme was adopted by the Council on 30th June 2010 and formally approved by the Welsh Language Board on 14th July.
In April 2010 the Welsh Government launched its Welsh Medium Education Strategy. The Strategy explains how it wishes to see growth in Welsh medium education and bilingual skills. As part of the Strategy all local authorities prepare a Welsh in Education Strategic Plan which is monitored by the Welsh Government. For now these Plans are non-statutory and for the time being local authorities are expected to carry out their Welsh Education Schemes. Our Welsh in Education Strategic Plan was sent to the Welsh Government in December 2011.
