Gaelic Immersion for Teachers (GIfT)

Ceòlas has been working in partnership with the University of Strathclyde to increase integration between the university’s GIfT programme, which trains current teachers to teach in Gaelic-medium streams, and Ceòlas’ ambitions for Gaelic development.

Next GIfT courses:

  • 30 Apr – 4 May, 2018
  • 1 – 6 July, 2018

Students gained linguistic skills and confidence in grammar, vocabulary and idiom in both formal and informal contexts, they also had a range of opportunities to use the language socially. The course demonstrated that Gaelic is very much alive in South Uist.

Feedback from course participants was very positive. In the evaluation, the unique setting of the Uist Gaelic community was recognised.  Participants stated that they would recommend this course to other GIfT students and GLL / GME teachers.
