In December 2017, the Welsh Government announced its Action Plan for Welsh in education for the next four years. This Plan is one of a suite of action plans stemming from the Cymraeg 2050 strategy and it outlines how the Government intends to reach the goal of creating a million Welsh speakers by 2050.

There are targets in the plan on increasing the numbers studying through the medium of Welsh and also it emphasises the importance of increasing the numbers and capacity of teachers to teach Welsh as a subject and medium.
