Research Interests

Mirain’s principal interests lie in the fields of Education and Bilingualism and the development of the Welsh language within education, the community and the home.

Her future research plans are to build on the foundations of the PhD to further investigate the current situation within Education in Wales, working with government bodies, schools and institutions for the development of strategies to encourage support for bilingual education and the use of Welsh outside the classroom.

Current Research

Mirain is currently working for the Wales Institute of Social Economic Research Data and Methods (WISERD) on a research project commissioned by the Welsh Government to independently evaluate their early years education policy – the Foundation Phase.
