Building close, trusting partnerships is vital to the long-term development of SSi.
In addition to government supported bodies in Wales, we are building close working relationships with commercial entities, workers bodies and entrepreneurial networks to explore a myriad of opportunities across the globe.

Tea Leaf Trust
Since 2022, SSi have been carrying out a pilot in urban and rural locations in Sri Lanka to develop courses in English for Tamil and English for Sinhalese.
In partnership with The Tea Leaf Trust we have introduced the AnyoneCanTeach [ACT] initiative, designed to give locals the ability to generate income, through becoming teachers of spoken languages, using the SSi methodology.
Wherever you go in the world there is an Irish Bar or groups who boast strong Scottish connections. The three most recent American Presidents have pushed their Celtic connections to these two countries.
Wales seems to hold back in pushing itself forward – that is where Global Welsh seeks to extend influence, linking the Welsh diaspora across and building a global community.
SSi supports the Global Welsh aim to promote Welsh business and is an active member of their Connect programme.
SSi has long helped celebrities learn Welsh for their appearance in the S4C TV show Iaith ar Daith. From Ruth Jones and Carol Vorderman, via Rakie Ayola and Chris Coleman, to Katie Owen and Mike Bubbins, the SSi methodology has helped all build confidence in the language to be able to speak it confidently on national television.
