With the North Wales economy continuing to expand, supporting skills through the medium of the Welsh language is critical.
Event being held at 5.30pm at the Deganwy Quay Hotel, LL31 9DQ, Thursday, February 16 (2017)
Hosted in partnership by Colegau Cymru, the North Wales Economic Ambition Board, and Welsh Government, this event looks to how North Wales is leading the way in terms of collaboration to support the Welsh language alongside business and education.
Coleg Cambria will present alongside senior colleagues from HMP Berwyn on how one of the largest construction projects within Wales - and now the largest new prison in the UK - will continue to work with further education to support the promotion and development of the Welsh language within the facility.
Grwp Llandrillo Menai and the Wales Strategic Director for Wylfa Newydd will also talk about how the Welsh language is supporting the promotion and development of skills for both the construction and longer-term operations at the proposed power station, in advance of formal construction on site subject to final planning approval.
The event is an opportunity to showcase how business and further education are already working on supporting the Welsh language within the workplace, and to challenge the audience about opportunities to promote and sustain bilingualism within a growing and developing economy.
