Coronavirus (COVID-19)

To ensure that we can support service areas placed under additional demand at this time, we have taken the decision to postpone all learning events that require staff attendance with immediate effect. This position will continue to be monitored based on the advice received from Government.

All our resources are now focused on supporting colleagues with any essential operational skills for critical services.

We will continue to communicate arrangements via our pages, and we encourage colleagues to take advantage of e-learning as part of any revised working arrangements they may be required to do. The application system for learning and development is temporarily unavailable for all new applications until further notice. 

Visit our Coronavirus guidance page to keep up to date with the latest information and advice for staff. For the latest guidance and updates to services for residents, please visit the Newsroom. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Welsh Language

Did you know?

  • The majority of people in the world are bilingual or multilingual
  • 60-65% of the world population is bilingual
  • There are between 6,000 and 7,000 languages worldwide

Come and join us to develop your bilingual or multilingual skills by learning, improving or refreshing your Welsh language.

All members of staff need to reach minimum level 1 Welsh in order to support our colleagues and customers, and some job roles require a higher language skill level.
