Language Support

 

Our formal education package is available to all local authorities in Scotland.  Through our Fèisgoil service we offer support to communities, schools and local authority staff with language, music and drama projects.

Spring /summer of 2016 will see the rolling out of our enhanced Language Support package in two local authorities – East Ayrshire and Falkirk.  Each authority has requested our ten-week block of Gaelic language classes for children in primary schools where it is not already on offer.  We look forward to sending in Murray Willis and Linda Macleod to lead on these exciting new initiatives, each culminating in a community ceilidh day.  In addition, Falkirk is looking to take a one day Mini Fèis in which first year pupils at a secondary school will be offered the opportunity to try their hand at a variety of fun language and music taster sessions, CPD training for existing music teachers expected to deliver traditional music and Gaelic Awareness Training for all Local Authority staff with an emphasis on the relevance of Gaelic to their own geographical area.
