Adra promoting the Welsh language in schools across north Wales

Adra has been collaborating with Ameer Davies-Rana, and his 1 Million project, which stems from the Welsh Government’s target to reach one million Welsh speakers by 2050. 

Adra and Ameer have been on a tour of secondary schools across north Wales, including

  • Ysgol y Creuddyn
  • Ysgol Glan y Môr
  • Ysgol Dyffryn Conwy
  • Ysgol Tryfan
  • Ysgol Brynrefail
  • Ysgol Dyffryn Nantlle. 

The intention was to promote the Welsh language, to display it as an interesting language that is used orally, every day, in the world of work, and not just as a language of education. 

Promoting the Welsh Language

Adra has a Language Charter and promoting the Welsh language is one of the principles within the Charter. 

This was a great opportunity for Adra representatives to raise awareness about the company as a place to work for future generations and the job opportunities available at Adra as well as the opportunities available to develop skills through apprenticeships through our Academi Adra scheme. We were also promoting that we use Welsh as an administrative language within the workplace. 

Ameer Davies-Rana said: 

“I am very proud to work with Adra in north Wales in order to promote the Welsh language. It is important to change and develop our attitude towards the language. The best way to do this is to ’make it cool’. 

The future

The way we see the language is what makes us decide if we want to be part of it or not. 

It’s time to open a door, close a door and move on… fashionable and cool with; 1Million.” 

Sarah Schofield, Adra’s Director of Customers and Communities, said: 

“I am so proud that we have organised and collaborated on a language trip across Secondary schools that are part of our communities. 

“It is important that the Welsh language is used and promoted, and that it is simple and clear so that more people can use it. 

“We are also very proud to emphasise that we use the Welsh language in our work on a daily basis, that the language can be heard in our offices and within our communities, and we are so proud to be a part of this.”
