An External Examiner is required for the  successful STREAP Programme to start immediately.  This post will normally be for a period of 4 years but will be dependent on continued funding from Scottish Government.

This postgraduate programme was developed jointly by Sabhal Mòr Ostaig UHI and the University of Aberdeen.  It aims to meet the needs of fully-qualified educationalists who want to enhance and extend professional practice in the teaching of subject/stage through the medium of Gaelic.

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.
