Minority Ethnic Achievement Grant (MEAG) Review consultation

This is a Welsh Government consultation on proposed changes to the Minority Ethnic Achievement Grant (MEAG).
Start of consultation: 31/07/2012
End of consultation: 31/10/2012

A full review has been undertaken of the MEAG in line with standard grant management procedures. The review considered the effectiveness and impact of the MEAG to date and made a number of recommendations for the future allocation and distribution of the funding.

The aim of the MEAG is to raise the achievement of eligible children and young people from minority ethnic backgrounds in Wales including:

  • asylum seekers
  • refugees
  • the children of migrant workers
  • European Roma children.

This consultation exercise affords an opportunity to comment on the recommendations and to suggest how best to configure the grant to ensure that it is fair and results in the best possible learner outcomes.
