Is this course right for me?

The training is an opportunity to improve individuals’ understanding of the wider aspects linked with language and culture. It provides an opportunity to collect information about language awareness and to investigate personal reactions to language matters. Individuals can raise their language awareness and understanding of stereotyping, prejudice and discrimination, with special attention given to discrimination on the basis of language. It is also possible to provide an update on the Welsh language context in relation to policies and current educational quality arrangements on a local and national level.

Please contact Sgiliaith to organise a course in your college.
