Consultation has concluded

The School Standards and Organisation (Wales) Act 2013 requires all local authorities to prepare a Welsh in Education Strategic Plan (WESP) setting out how they will develop Welsh-medium education.


Powys County Council is currently preparing a new 10-year WESP for 2022-2032, and is carrying out consultation on its draft plan, which has been prepared in accordance with Welsh Government guidance.


The draft plan sets out the Council’s vision for Welsh-medium education, followed by a number of targets and actions, based around 7 Outcomes, with the aim of increasing the use of Welsh in education over the next 10 years. These outcomes will contribute towards achieving the Welsh Government’s Cymraeg 2050 Strategy, which aims to have one million Welsh speakers by 2050.


We would like to know your views on the Council’s plan, and in particular, to what extent you agree that the Council’s plans will lead to an increase in the number of pupils accessing Welsh-medium education by 2032.


The Council’s draft WESP for 2022-2032 is available in the ‘Documents’ section on the right hand side of this page. Please read the document before completing the questionnaire.

A paper copy can be requested by using the email address and postal address below, or by phoning 01597 827284.

All forms of communication and/or questionnaires must be completed by 19th November 2021


What will happen next?


Once the consultation has ended, the Council will prepare a consultation report outlining the responses received and will review and update the WESP. It is expected that the consultation report and the final WESP for 2022-2032 will be considered by the Council’s Cabinet in January 2022 before being sent on to the Welsh Government for their consideration.
