In July 2012, the Minister for Education and Skills established a Group to review Welsh second language at Key Stages 3 and 4 and to consider how to address poor standards and low attainment in the subject.

The main objective of the Group was to consider what changes should be made to teaching and assessment of Welsh second language at Key Stages 3 and 4 to enable more learners to use the language. The Review commenced in September 2012.

The Group has gathered evidence and met with a number of stakeholders involved in the field. The final report and recommendations were submitted to the Minister in September 2013. 

The Minister has considered the recommendations and published a response.
