Welsh Language Standards
Since 1 April 2018, Pembrokeshire College / Coleg Sir Benfro has committed to comply with the Welsh Language Standards, as set out by the Welsh Government under Section 44 of the Welsh Language (Wales) Measure 2011.
The Standards are a set of legally binding requirements that aim to improve the bilingual service that the people of Wales can expect to receive from a number of public and statutory bodies, including universities and colleges.
What are the Welsh Language Standards?
Standards explain how organisations are expected to use the Welsh language in different situations.
The duties which come from the Standards mean that organisations should not treat the Welsh language less favourably than the English language, together with promoting and facilitating the use of the Welsh language (making it easier for people to use in their day-to-day-life).
Pembrokeshire College is required to comply with the following Standards:
- Service Delivery
- Policy Making
- Record Keeping
Standards aim to:
- make it clear to organisations what their duties are in relation to the Welsh language
- make it clearer to Welsh speakers about the services they can expect to receive in Welsh
- make Welsh language services more consistent and improve their quality.
The Standards that are relevant to Pembrokeshire College are listed within the Compliance Notice issued by Welsh Language Commissioner.
