We are excited to announce the first conference of its kind by the National Academy for Educational Leadership, ‘Leading in Welsh: The Journey to 2050’.

The conference is designed for headteachers and senior leaders from schools, the youth work sector and the post compulsory education and training sector. The conference will offer educational leaders from all settings the opportunity to celebrate their successes in developing the Welsh language in their organisations and explore the next steps to realise the ambition of  one million Welsh speakers by 2050.
