Gaelic Immersion Weeks for Teachers

Gaelic Immersion Week for Teachers

Immersion Week for Teachers

Bòrd na Gàidhlig work with certain colleges and universities that offer Gaelic language courses to develop and deliver Gaelic immersion weeks specifically for teachers.

Each week is designed to give teachers who have an interest in Gaelic-medium Education the opportunity to:

  • Develop skills in conversational Gaelic with a focus on language suitable for a classroom environment
  • Develop reading, writing and  grammatical skills
  • Find out about the next steps and support available for teachers wishing to transfer to Gaelic-medium Education

The weeks are run at 2 levels

  • Beginner / Intermediate
  • Intermediate/ Advanced

All who attend will have been involved in Gaelic language learning prior to the course.

In 2014/2015 the University of Glasgow will deliver the Beginner / Intermediate courses and

Sabhal Mòr Ostaig will deliver the Intermediate / Advanced courses.

Further details about the next week will be posted here in due course.

Your school and authority must release you to attend a Gaelic Immersion Week.
