The Cardiff & the Vale of Glamorgan Welsh for Adults Centre at the School of Welsh is holding its official launch at Aberdare Hall, Cardiff University (7 September).
Special guests will include Chris Needs (BBC Radio Wales presenter), Ann Jenkins (Head of Bilingual Learning, Welsh Assembly Government) and Brigyn, a popular Welsh acoustic band.
Dr Rachel Heath-Davies, the new Director at the Centre is relishing the challenge ahead. She said: ‘The evening will mark a new, exciting era for the Welsh for Adults sector in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan. It will also celebrate the high standards already being achieved at the Centre as the students present will all receive a certificate to note their achievement over the past year."
"We are looking forward to building an even more successful future and to welcoming the hundreds of students who have already registered on our 2007/08 courses held here at Cardiff University and in many other locations throughout the region."
Some 2,000 students came through the Centre in 2006/07, contributing substantially to the 20,000 people who learn Welsh each year. 2007/08 will be an even more ambitious year for the Centre, as the current national campaign suggests, aiming to increase the number of individuals learning the Welsh language in accordance with the commitment made in ‘Iaith Pawb’ (2003) the Welsh Assembly Government's bilingual Strategy for Wales.
