Y Gweinidog Materion Gwledig a Gogledd Cymru, a’r Trefnydd
A wnaiff y Gweinidog gadarnhau y bydd Rhaglen Datblygu Gwledig 2014-2020, sy'n werth £842 miliwn, yn cael ei wario'n llawn erbyn diwedd 2023 yn unol â rheolau N+3?
I will make every endeavour to ensure the funding available is fully spent, this is my objective. The programme is over-committed, and we expect projects to deliver against their agreed objectives in line with Rural Development Programme 2014-2020 N+3 rules and timeframe.
A wnaiff y Gweinidog gadarnhau a fydd cyllideb Cymru sy'n cynnwys cyllid o £27.3 miliwn ar gyfer y Rhaglen Economi a Chynaliadwyedd Gwledig yn 2022-23, yn cael ei gwario'n llawn yn ystod y flwyddyn ariannol hon?
It is my objective to ensure the funding is fully spent. I have already announced £227m worth of rural investment schemes over 3 years to support farmers, foresters, land managers and food businesses and I am currently considering advice from officials regarding the further use of funding for rural investment during this financial year.

Beth mae Llywodraeth Cymru'n ei wneud i gefnogi oedolion sy'n dysgu a'r rhai sy'n ail-hyfforddi yn ddiweddarach mewn bywyd?
The Welsh Government has just celebrated adult learners’ week in Wales (17-23 October) where, working with our partners, we have promoted our vision as a ‘second chance nation’ for lifelong learning. This is being achieved by the promotion of online, live and in-person events, courses, taster sessions, open days, resources and careers advice and guidance.
Specifically, this package of support includes access to:
- Personal Learning Accounts – which provide flexible courses and qualifications and are fully funded by the Welsh Government. Through this, adults are able to acquire new skills and qualifications that local employers need to help progress an adult’s current career or change it altogether
- Adult and Community Learning – provision of community led courses providing high quality education for adults, funded by the Welsh Government.
- Part time Further Education provision – provision of a wide range of courses ranging from literacy, numeracy, digital and ESOL provision to Workplace Diplomas, providing funded second chance and upskilling opportunities to adult learners
- The Apprenticeship programme - which aims to increase opportunities for people of all ages and background to develop transferable skills in the workplace and boost their life chances.
- Working Wales – a single point of access for employment support needs.
- ReAct+ - which offers tailored solutions which may include financial support, skills training and Personal Development Support to help remove barriers to employment, such as support with mental health, confidence building, language skills and more.

The Pathway 2 funding call, which aims to build partnership and strategic collaboration through international collaborative projects will close on 1 December. Detailed information on the international partners who will work alongside Welsh institutions on Pathway 2 projects will be available on the Taith website once outcomes of the call are known.
Latest updates on the programme are available on the Taith website and will be updated periodically https://www.taith.wales/news/
A oes gan Lywodraeth Cymru dargedau ar gyfer sgoriau yn y profion PISA nesaf?
This government does not have a numerical target for PISA 2022 but is focussed on supporting learners and schools to feel well placed to give a strong account of their capability and resilience, and derive the benefits of participating in PISA, so that we are able to learn from the experience.
Sut mae'r Gweinidog yn rhagweld y prosiect Undebau a’r Byd Gwaith yn gwella canlyniadau addysgol?
Careers and Work-Related Experiences is a cross-cutting theme throughout the Curriculum for Wales. It will inspire learners to develop an understanding of the purpose of work in life, both for themselves and for society as a whole, and develop resilience and the ability to be adaptable in response to the challenges, choices and responsibilities of work and life. There are a range of existing programmes of work which facilitate and support schools’ collaboration with employers and businesses to support CWRE, and this pilot will complement that ongoing engagement.
The Unions and the World of Work pilot is one element of our support for CWRE, and will see a range of materials being made available to secondary schools across Wales, with the aim of ensuring the next generation of workers and employers have a better understanding of employment rights, the role of trade unions and the impact of collective voice in addressing issues in the workplace and beyond.
It is for schools and practitioners to decide what specific experiences, knowledge and skills will support their specific learners to realise the four purposes. A school’s curriculum should enable learners to gain experiences related to work and careers, developing knowledge of the breadth of opportunities available to them throughout their lives. This learning can help them make informed decisions about their career pathways.
Y Gweinidog Iechyd a Gwasanaethau Cymdeithasol
A wnaiff y Gweinidog ddatganiad ar ba mor aml y ceir rhybuddion du ar gyfer adrannau brys a sut mae'r Llywodraeth yn bwriadu lleihau'r nifer ohonynt?
On Monday 3 October, the health and social care system was under extreme pressure which led to three acute hospital sites declaring a ‘black alert /business continuity incident’. These were Prince Charles Hospital, Merthyr Tydfil; Princess of Wales Hospital, Bridgend; and Morriston Hospital, Swansea. All three sites deescalated to escalation status level 4 within 24 hours following actions taken in line with the national escalation and de-escalation framework.
The declaration of such alerts in Wales is extremely rare. However, you will be aware peaks in extreme pressure and declarations of business continuity or major incidents are not unique to Wales with several Trusts in England having declared such alerts in recent days and weeks.
In support of delivery by Health Boards of resilient urgent and emergency care services, the Welsh Government has invested an additional £25m in recurrent funding. A further £3m has been allocated to the Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust for 100 additional frontline staff, all of which will become operational this Winter. A national programme has also been established to support Health Boards deliver safe, effective and timely urgent and emergency care safe services in line with our six policy goals for these essential services.
A fydd Llywodraeth Cymru'n amlinellu beth fydd y polisi y gaeaf hwn o ran COVID-19, ac os yw hyn yn cynnwys y cyfarwyddyd i aros gartref?
