Scotland’s National Centre for Languages (SCILT) has published a case study which focuses on increasing the uptake for languages as young people move from the broad general education into the senior phase. It demonstrates how self-evaluation has been used to secure improvements.

Leadership is key to the success of schools to which all colleagues can contribute.
This leadership programme aims to develop practitioners as teacher leaders who are able to positively influence Gaelic Education within their school. It has been developed by Social Enterprise Academy, in partnership with Education Scotland, and accredited by the Scottish College of Educational Leadership(SCEL).
Specific objectives are to:
apply leadership principles to the contemporary issues and challenges in Gaelic Education
use action learning and peer learning approaches to identify new approaches to improving practice
enable educational professionals to develop reflective practice techniques to ensure their ongoing development as classroom practitioners
develop practitioners’ own leadership ability.
Practitioners can gain an Award in Leadership (SCQF 9) on attending the leadership programme and successfully completing a reflective assessment. The programme, and related assessment, is delivered through the medium of Gaelic.
