Welsh in the workplace

Welsh in the workplace

Bilingualism offers a wider choice of career prospects to people in Wales. Research has also shown that bilingual staff are likely to earn more than staff unable to speak Welsh. 


The ability to speak Welsh is increasingly being acknowledged as an important skill to have in the workplace.


The public sector

Our Gwent Welsh for Adults Centre provides Welsh in the Workplace classes to many public, private and voluntary sector organisations in the Gwent area. Public bodies working in Wales are required to provide bilingual services in accordance with the Welsh Language Act and can help to meet these obligations through staff training. 


The private sector

Training staff to speak Welsh is becoming more popular in the private sector, as companies realise the benefits of promoting bilingualism to their customers. Research has shown that Welsh speakers are more likely to become customers of companies that use Welsh to market their products.
