21st Century Schools Programme
21st Century Schools Programme is a unique collaboration between the Welsh Government (WG), Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA) and local government. The collaboration brings together all the necessary elements to make education facilities across Wales fit for the 21st Century.
The programme team, based at the WLGA, maintain and update the website with materials and information that will help and support a range of stakeholders including local authorities, schools, young people, FE institutions, diocesan authorities, professional bodies, contractors, suppliers and the media.
The Programme will focus resources on the right schools in the right places, for early years through to post-16, with funding and expertise jointly provided by WG and local authorities.
The Programme has been operating since March 2009 and was formally launched by the Minister for Children, Education and Lifelong Learning, Leighton Andrews AM, at a conference aimed at key stakeholders in March 2010.
