Using the Welsh Language in Sport – Sports Apprentice Bursary
The Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol will offer bursaries worth £250 to sports apprentices and Further Education learners.
The Apprentice or learner will be required to complete a short bilingual application form. The form will detail the use they will make of the Welsh language in the apprenticeship or learning programme. It is emphasised here that there is an enthusiasm to promote the use of Welsh (i) personally and (ii) in the work which is key and not necessarily the level of language skills of the apprentice/learner.
Apprenticeship providers and Further Education Colleges will be able to nominate apprentices and learner each year. The Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol retains the right to only award two bursaries per institution dependent upon the number of applications received. Providers are encouraged to give priority where reasonably possible to groups under-represented among bilingual sports trainers in particular individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds and/or BAME individuals.
All applications must be submitted by the 15th of November 2021.
Once a valid nomination has been received the bursary will be paid to the nominee in January.
