Our briefings on Gaelic Education keep practitioners updated of some of Education Scotland’s, and key partners’, support for improvement in Gaelic Education. Please follow this link for more information:
SCILT – Scotland’s National Centre for Languages – has published a programme of webinars to support professional learning in modern languages. Practitioners may wish to get together to participate in the live streaming of events, which will include opportunities for online discussion. Alternatively, the recorded version can be used as a stimulus for collegiate discussion, in-service days or as part of individual practitioners’ professional development. Registration will be advertised in the weekly SCILT e-bulletin and on the National Modern Languages Hub prior to these publicised dates.
e-Sgoil is an interactive, real-time teaching facility which uses Glow, Office 365 and V-scene to support the teaching of Gaelic and through Gaelic in any school in Scotland. This supports the curriculum for 1+2 Approach to Languages, Gaelic Learner and Gaelic Medium Education. A short promotional video is available here:
e-Sgoil is currently inviting expressions of interest for teaching National 5 Gaelic (Learners) from August 2019. This may be to provide progression with the 1+2 Approach to Languages, or to enable learners to access Gaelic as a new subject.
The NQ support materials for Gàidhlig, Gaelic(Learners) and subjects and courses through the medium of Gaelic, previously hosted on the Education Scotland National Qualifications website are now available on our professional learning community for Gaelic education on Yammer.
It should be noted that these resources no longer fully match the SQA course specifications. However, they do provide a range of useful support on approaches to effective learning, teaching and ongoing classroom assessment, should teachers wish to use them. You will find these resources here.
A glow login is required to access Yammer and membership of the group is also required.
Applications are now invited for this 60-credit programme on Gaelic Medium Education. The programme is delivered by Aberdeen University and Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, and is fully-funded by the Scottish Government. Find out more.
This project outlines e-Sgoil’s virtual learning approach to overcoming barriers to learning across a range of local authorities and aspects of pedagogy. It is intended to assist senior leaders and teachers with improving practice through the medium of Gaelic and English.
