Dyfodol i’r Iaith has welcomed the Government’s commitment to create a bilingual worforce to serve the early years and child care and play in Wales.
The Government’s White paper recently published outlines a 10 year plan for this field.
Ond element in the White paper is to enhance the workforce’s bilingual skills, and Dyfodol i’r Iaith welcomes this.
Dr Elin Walker Jones, a clinical psychologist and Dyfodol i’r Iaith’s spokesperson on health commented, “We warmly welcome the commitment to create a bilingual workforce as part of the ten year plan for yearly years and child care. We are also looking forward to cooperating with the Government and other relevant bodies to put in place appropriate procedures to realise these plans.”
Dr Jones added, “It’s great to see the white paper’s statement that a bilingual workforce is a key element, but it does not detail how this will be brought about.”
Dyfodol i’r Iaith will respond formally to the white paper, and will offer to assist with establishing a procedure which will ensure a bilingual workforce.
