The resource includes information about the Certificate, supporting learning resources, video examples and past papers. The purpose of the resources is to assist candidates in the Language Skills Certificate to prepare for their assessments. However, they are available free of charge, and are suitable for anyone who wants to improve their Welsh language skills. The register is now closed for this academic year.

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.
