Welsh Government – Research into Welsh second language (2011)

Arad completed research to collect information on the organisation and provision of Welsh second language education in Key Stages 2, 3 and 4 in order to shape future developments. The objectives of the research were to collect information on the time allocated to the subject; the qualifications that learners study e.g. short course / full course, higher tier / foundation tier; and teachers’ qualifications and experience. This research, which was based on a survey of 170 schools in Wales, was undertaken over a period of three months, between February and April 2011.
