Just had a discussion with my daughter about Welsh Second Language teaching - how much she hates it - how little she has learned and so on......... Then it came to me in a flash - how to make students more interested and enthused about the Welsh language. Simple really - get rid of Welsh examinations. This will free teachers up from the tyranny of having to teach the WJEC Welsh Second Language curriculum. In this brave new world there would still be welsh lessons but no exams and no assessment. It would then be up to the teachers to create learning opportunities which would really engage learners in the language and the culture of Wales. Is there any support out there for this radical plan? The Welsh government is giving 400 grand over 4 years to improve welsh second language achievement levels and as yet they have not said exactly how the money is going to be invested. If it is invested in inset courses to help welsh teachers to improve their grades in WJEC Welsh second language it will not be a success and our young people will be let down.
