Clubs Welsh Promise
As part of CWLWM, Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs recognises the importance of developing the Welsh language and is proud of taking an active role in contributing to the Welsh Governments target of 1 million Welsh speakers by 2050.
As part of our commitment, we have developed a Welsh language promise for settings.
We understand that starting out on a journey of working towards the Active Offer can be a daunting prospect, therefore, we have developed a Welsh promise journey especially for childcare and play settings.
The aim of this promise (with the hands-on support of Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs Childcare Business Development Officers) is to support your setting from the first step (Bronze) through to the final step (Gold). Throughout this journey, however far you wish to travel, you will be able to show that your setting is working towards and possibly achieving the Active Offer. On completion of Gold you may wish to apply for Cynnig Cymraeg, giving your setting recognition from the Welsh Language Commissioner.
The promise is in 3 tiers;
- Bronze – in this promise you will be making your first steps and promising to actively build foundations to begin implementing the Welsh language into your setting. Achievement through self-assessment and evidence to Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs.
- Silver – at this stage you are well on your way and are promising to ensure the Welsh language is seen and heard during daily routines in your setting and more Welsh language opportunities are given to service users. Achievement through self-assessment and evidence to Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs.
- Gold – The final stage. After implementing the Bronze and Silver into your setting the final stage is that you promise that the Welsh language will be embraced and embedded into the day to day running of your setting. Actively offering the Welsh language without service users having to ask for it. Achievement through Welsh Language Commissioners Office, CIW inspection outcomes, observations.
A certificate will be awarded on completion of each level.
By committing to the Promise, working towards the elements and gathering evidence as you go, you will not only share the wonderful culture and identity of Wales with the children and families of your setting but also actively show Care Inspectorate Wales how you are working towards the Active Offer.
To start your Welsh journey please complete an Expression of Interest and our Childcare Business Development Officers will contact you to support your journey.
