Cardiff and Vale College is proud to be Welsh.

Cardiff and Vale College is proud to be Welsh. Everyone has the right to communicate and receive services from us in Welsh and we are committed to providing that opportunity for our learners, employees and visitors.

As part of the new legislation, in Wales the Welsh language has equal legal status with English and must not be treated any less favorably. As a public body we comply with this legislation via a set of Welsh Language Standards we must comply with.

Below is a link to the Welsh Language Standards that Cardiff and Vale College must comply with:

CAVC Welsh Language Standards (Final Compliance Notice)

What if you think we are not fulfilling our duty?

We endeavor to comply with our standards entirely and to provide a comprehensive service to anyone choosing to communicate with us or access our services through the medium of Welsh. We are sorry if we do slip up though and would like you to tell us if you feel we have not fulfilled our duty as set out in the standards so that we can take steps to put it right.

CAVC is committed to dealing effectively with any concerns, comments or complaints about our compliance with our service delivery, policy making and operational standards.
