In this section, you will find ideas, activities and resources related to community participation in the Welsh Baccalaureate Core at the Intermediate level. Resources from other levels may also be adapted for use at the Intermediate level.
Welsh Bac students encourage people to get on-line.
Of the 2,308,000 adults in Wales, 785,000 (34%) do not go online. The Government recognises that going online is an increasingly important part of life, and the Government has identified this work as a priority. Of the 785,000, approximately 515,000 are 50 plus years of age.
A successful way of providing support is through young people helping older people gain the necessary skills (though the skills swap can be two-way). This can provide all sorts of community benefits beyond the skills gained. Grandchildren/grandparents often do this informally. Students at a number of schools including Olfcha, Preseli and St Cyres and Bryn Elian have volunteered to ‘teach’ older people as a part of their Community Participation for the Welsh Baccalaureate
