Education

Since the Welsh Liberal Democrats took over the education department in 2016, a 2020 OECD report which found that under our leadership, Wales now has a clear vision for its education system and for its learners. We aim to continue our national mission to give every child the highest quality education possible.

  • We will create and fund a Right to Life-long Learning, giving everyone the opportunity to face the future with confidence, access a changing economy and jobs market, and pursue their aspirations, talents and ambitions.

  • Continue to invest in creating community focused schools, including ensuring that all schools have Community Engagement Officers.

  • Invest in measures to tackle holiday hunger and improve engagement opportunities for vulnerable learners, including the provision of free school meals throughout all school holidays. b. Ending digital exclusion by ensuring that all learners have access to their own laptop/device and schools have access to adequate broadband and technology.

  • Create summer schools, out-of-term schools, and other resources as well as solutions to allow students to catch up with lost learning after COVID-19.

  • Expand the current Personal Learning Accounts, so that everyone has the chance to continue learning and training, particularly in sectors likely to contribute to a greener, stronger economy.

  • Introduce an all-Wales framework to ensure consistency across schools and councils, investing in access to school counsellors so that more pupils are given the support they need.

  • We will reform apprenticeships, ensuring that all learners have access to high quality training, and that time for formal training is protected.

  • Working towards the introduction of the Real Living Wage for the Further Education sector.
