NEWS ROUNDUP: Michael Sheen supports Oxford Uni students
A bursary named after Hollywood star Michael Sheen to help Welsh students go to Oxford University has been announced. The scheme is intended to provide "much-needed" financial support for undergraduates from Wales. It has been developed by Jesus College in collaboration with the Newport-born actor, who was brought up in Port Talbot. Sheen has said that he has pledged £50,000 over five years.
Teaching unions have said they will need support to deal with the fallout of the pandemic from whoever wins next month's Senedd elections. Unions have called for politicians to help staff as they help pupils deal with months of missed education. Parties vying for power are promising thousands of extra school staff.
And according to Public Health Wales, inequalities remain between the number of black, Asian, and minority ethnic people having the Covid vaccine and white people. Uptake for BAME people is at least 10% lower in almost every age group, latest data shows. The largest difference was in adults aged 55-59.
