The Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol’s role was expanded to include the Further Education and Apprenticeships sectors and a new national strategy was launches in 2019. A national staff development and mentoring programme for the post-16 sector was commissioned which is delivered by Sgiliaith on behalf of the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol.
The aim of Sgiliaith’s National Staff Development Programme isto provide innovative training and practical advice on good practice and resources to staff in the further education and apprenticeships sectors. The purpose of this programme is to support practitioners to offer Welsh medium and bilingual provision to both learners and apprentices.
Sgiliaith’s development opportunities are suitable for everyone working in the sector, regardless of Welsh language skills or previous experience.
Sgiliaith’s Staff Development Training Programme offers a range of development opportunities to support the progression of practitioners’ bilingual skills, whilst Sgiliaith’s Staff Mentoring Programme offers support to practitioners in real learning situations to embed Welsh/bilingualism in the classroom or workplace.
Further details of Sgiliaith’s development and mentoring opportunities can be seen in their prospectus.
