Program description

This 60-credit programme is run in partnership with Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, and is fully-funded by the Scottish Government. It is delivered over an academic year via blended learning, with three face-to-face inputs, telephone tutorials and online support and delivery. Attendance at the face-to-face sessions is mandatory, and there is an ‘attendance’ requirement for telephone tutorials and on-line activity.

The programme covers a range of theoretical, historical and policy perspectives – interpretive, social, creative – relating to immersion and bilingual teaching and the promotion of Gaelic Medium Education. It develops participants’ personal Gaelic language skills, competence and confidence in classroom practice and critical reflection in the Gaelic medium context. Please note that this programme is delivered entirely through the medium of Gaelic.
