The 21st Century Schools and Education Capital Programme is about creating learning environments designed to improve the delivery of education in the 21st Century.

It is a major, long-term and strategic capital investment programme. It aims to deliver:

  • learning environments in Wales that will enable the successful implementation of strategies for improvement and better educational outcomes
  • greater economy and efficiency for learning environments through better use of resources 
  • a sustainable education system in Wales that meets national building standards and reduces the recurrent costs and carbon footprint of education buildings.

The programme will focus resources into educational buildings where investment is needed. Funding is jointly provided by Welsh Government and stakeholders.
