Following a series of recent blows to spending on the Welsh language, Dyfodol i’r Iaith have expressed concern over possible threats to funding for the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol. This latest threat comes in the wake of the Welsh Government’s latest draft budget.
Heini Gruffudd, Dyfodol’s Chair said, “The Government’s draft budget has clearly shown a lack of respect and priority for the Welsh language. This latest announcement represents yet another threat; this time to a body which has done so much to develop and promote Welsh-medium university education across a range of subject areas.
We are facing a ridiculous situation where Welsh-medium education provision is under threat, yet the Government remains perfectly happy to spend money on supporting Welsh students to study in England.”
We look forward to discussing this matter at further length with the Government and the Higher Education Funding Body.”
