Welsh Language Standards

The Welsh Language Commissioner has published Welsh Language Standards, as set out by the Welsh Government under Section 44 of the Welsh Language (Wales) Measure 2011. These Standards will apply to Learning and Work Institute from 25 January 2017.

The Standards

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 Learning and Work Institute.  The Standards clearly set out what our responsibilities are in terms of providing bilingual services, ensuring the Welsh language is not treated any less favourably than the English language.

Learning and Work Institute is required to comply with the following Standards:

  • Service Delivery
  • Policy Making
  • Operational
  • Record Keeping

Compliance notice

A compliance notice was issued to Learning and Work Institute on 25 July 2016 setting out which standards apply to us. The full Compliance Notice is available below.
