Welsh Government funding to develop educational books and resources

21.04.2015

Canolfan Peniarth, which is University of Wales Trinity Saint David’s publishing houese, has received significant funding from the Welsh Government to develop a range of books and resources for the education sector in Wales over the next year.

Canolfan Peniarth is already currently working on new publications for the sector, and is about to launch a series of novels for children, as well as reading comprehension books and a variety of apps for mobile devices.

The latest funding from the Welsh Government however, is specifically to develop seven new publications in areas including History, Science, Music and Welsh first language.  These resources will include books, interactive activities, flashcards, grammar mats, music books and CDs and much more.

Gwydion Wynne, Director of Canolfan Peniarth said, “We are very proud of our working relationship with the Welsh Government, and are extremely grateful for the further support provided to develop more resources and books for schools in Wales.  It’s a very exciting period for us as we already have plans in place to launch new publications in the summer term and next autumn”.

All books and resources published by Canolfan Peniarth are piloted in the classroom as part of the development process, and this is element is a key process to ensure success according to Gwydion Wynne.  “We have strong links with teachers and schools across Wales, which assist us in the authoring process.  The close relationship that exists between Peniarth and the schools ensure that our resources have a positive influence on the education of children in Wales”.

The new resources will be developed during the next year, and most will be published by September 2016.  In the meantime however, Canolfan Peniarth will continue to work on current publications, and details of launch dates will be released in coming weeks on their website www.canolfanpeniarth.org .
