Issue details

Welsh Language Skills Strategy.

A revision of the Council’s previous Welsh Language Skills Strategy.


A revision is required to more closely reflect the commitments made in the Bilingual Cardiff Strategy, the Bilingual Cardiff :  Bilingual Council Policy and the statutory requirements of the Welsh Language Standards.


The revised Strategy addresses issues of identifying and recording Welsh essential posts and introduces requirements that all staff receive training to ALTE Level 1 Welsh and all customer roles are designated as ALTE Level 3 fluency as a desirable requirement.


The revised Strategy will also facilitate reporting on the Council’s recruitment of Welsh essential and Welsh desirable posts in the Annual Report on the Welsh Language Standards. This reporting is a statutory requirement.
