Pupil Language Ambassadors (PLAs) are school pupils in year 8 and 9, who have been recruited by their teachers (following an application process) and trained by Routes Cymru.

PLAs take a key role within their school by promoting the value of Modern Foreign language learning. The main aim is to increase the take-up of languages amongst school pupils. Their input is extremely valuable. Their messages will enthuse school pupils and encourage them to think more positively about learning languages.

This is achieved through the organisation of events and activities within the school community in partnership with teachers and support from Routes Cymru (Student language Ambassadors).
