 £100m to be invested in delivering 21st Century schools in Wales

Over the next three years, £100 million is to be invested into the delivery of the flagship 21st Century Schools and Education programme in Wales.

An extra £75 million has been allocated to the 21st Century Schools and Education Programme, a major, long-term and strategic capital investment programme to modernise education infrastructure.

In addition, £30m will be released from the programme in future years for immediate investment in capital projects that will contribute to the goal of reaching a million Welsh speakers by 2050. This is a shared priority with Plaid Cymru.

The money will bring the total invested over the life of the programme to almost £3.8 billion. The first phase of the programme will finish in 2019 having invested £1.4 billion to support the rebuild and refurbishment of more than 150 schools and colleges across Wales. The second phase will see a spend of £2.3 billion.
