Raising confidence for assessors
The purpose of this online self-study course is to give assessors the resources and information to work confidently bilingually with their learners. The course considers some of the benefits and challenges of working bilingually before setting out to give information, resources and motivation that will enable assessors to develop provision and work confidently through the medium of Welsh. The course is bilingual, but it is aimed at raising the confidence of Welsh-speaking assessors as they provide their training through the medium of Welsh.

Language Awareness – Social Work MOOC
An interactive resource that aims to create a context in which social work students can empathise with service users and feel and understand why Welsh-medium services are an important consideration. The module is based on 5 units which focus on: understanding language need; going under the skin of the bilingual experience; considering the context of the Welsh language – its current condition, its history and the impact on service users; exploring the relationship between language and power, the implications of the More than just words strategy and active offer, and getting ready to practise and work in accordance with More than just words. Ideally, students should work their way through the materials from unit 1 to 5 as discussion and learning builds incrementally from one to the other. However, the units are also self-contained to a large extent and units, or parts of a unit, may be lifted and used in conjunction with other modules or learning materials.
Language Awareness in Health and Social Care
These bilingual language awareness resources have been developed for Health and Social Care FE learners. They aim to increase the understanding of learners with different Welsh language skills of the significance of the Welsh language in health and social care services. In particular, they support the teaching of Unit 1 of the new Health and Social Care Level 2: Core qualification: learning outcomes 7 and 8. Learning outcome 7 requires learners to understand the importance of effective communication in health and social care. Learning outcome 8 requires learners to understand the importance of Welsh language and culture for individuals and carers. These resources are also vailable via FE colleges' learning portals.
