Closed petition Set an ambition and a clear timetable to give every child in the country Welsh-medium education

We believe the Welsh Government should include in upcoming legislation a statutory aim that every young person in Wales will be educated through the medium of Welsh, building up to this over time, to ensure more and more young people in the future become fluent and confident in the language.

More details

We believe that Welsh belongs to all the people of Wales, and that everyone, whatever their background, has the right to the language.

The evidence shows that the way to ensure young people become fluent in the language is Welsh-medium education, but only around 20% of young people are given this opportunity at present.

We believe there should be significant and sustained growth in Welsh-medium education, building up to universal Welsh-medium provision to ensure access to the language for all young people.
