Failing to provide education in a learner’s language of choice is discriminatory. Funding and expanding apprenticeship provision in our language will enable better participation rates and encourage jobs in rural communities. Apprentices work in Welsh and English all the time. It should be easy to choose to work, learn how to do our job and do our maths and IT in whichever language we want, or even mix it up.  It would be great if we could learn our trade in English but do our maths in Welsh. 
Particular care should be paid to ensure that funding is available to secure sufficient staff able to deliver numeracy, IT and literacy in Welsh.

    Absolutely - no excuse for them not to be bilingual.
