Blended learning definition:

Blended learning provides a combination of face-to-face learning and dynamic digital activities and content that facilitate any time/any place learning.

 The Welsh Government is working closely with post-16 learning providers and our key stakeholders to support post-16 learners and staff. 

Our Digital 2030 position statement summarises the current position with the Digital 2030 strategic framework for digital learning in the post-16 sector, including activities during the COVID-19 pandemic and next steps for the 2021/22 academic year.

This collection of material, developed in consultation with our Blended Learning Working Group, includes guidance on blended learning for learning providers and teaching practitioners.

This page will be updated as further information becomes available.
