Health, social services and social care

IAITH has extensive experience of working across health and social care to provide training, research and development and consultancy.

For more than 30 years  IAITH have been at the forefront of developing new training resources and providing language awareness training for the sector. Amongst our customers are the Care Council for Wales; Department of Health and Social Services, Welsh Government; Welsh Language Commissioner; National Welsh-medium College and numerous local authorities, health boards and large social care charities. 

In 2015 we were pleased to be able to develop the first ever bilingual MOOC (Massive Open On-line Course) on the Welsh language for social work students in Wales for the National Welsh-medium College.

IAITH was also responsible for undertaking the qualitative research for Welsh Government which formed the back-drop to the Mwy na geiriau (More than just words) strategy.
