Choosing Welsh medium education

One of the many choices parents in Wales must make is decide whether to give their children Welsh or English medium education. We chat to parents about the type of things they had to consider in the decision-making process.

Switching languages

Welsh language immersion units are available to children who wish to make the switch from English medium education to Welsh medium education. The reasons for doing so are diverse. This film takes a look at how the Immersion Unit in Cardiff helps children between year 1 in primary school and year 8 in secondary school make the switch.

What's on your mind?

Starting secondary school is a milestone for parents as well as their children. Every child’s experience is different and our group of parents share how they hope to, and continue to, address any issues raised.
