Gaelic Immersion Course for Teachers

Gaelic Immersion Course for Teachers (GIfT)

The Gaelic Immersion for Teachers (GIfT) was developed by the Universities of Strathclyde and Edinburgh.

GIfT is a one-year full-time course delivered by the University of Strathclyde. Successful completion of the course will lead to a Post Graduate Diploma and consists of 120 course credits at Masters level.

It has been designed for qualified teachers who have intermediate Gaelic language competence (similar to Higher Gaelic or equivalent) and are committed to working in GME, either in the primary sector or as secondary subject specialists teaching through the medium of Gaelic. It is a full-time, intensive course to ensure rapid progress towards advanced competence in Gaelic and the development of the specialist pedagogical skills required for Gaelic medium education.

The course will follow the school year and the teachers who are supported by their Local Authority are expected to return to teach through the medium of Gaelic. 

If you are interested in this course, please speak to your Local Authority.
