Section 68 - Welsh Ministers’ duty to promote access etc to Welsh medium courses of study

155.This section requires the Welsh Ministers to promote access to courses of study taught through the medium of Welsh, and to promote the availability of such courses of study. A “course of study” for this purpose is a course of education, for example mathematics, or training, that leads to a qualification or set of qualifications approved or designated under the Qualifications Wales Act 2015. The duty applies in relation to those children to whom the Act applies, i.e. those specified in section 1 of the Act. (In practice, a “course of study” as defined is generally taken by children aged 14-16, but other, younger, children may sometimes take one.).
