Rural and Islands College Merger proposal: consultation
Bòrd na Gàidhlig has submitted a response to the consultation: Rural and Islands College Merger proposal. Among the points raised:
We would recommend that part of the merger proposals could include plans to build capacity to deliver such a range of subjects in the medium of Gaelic, in particular to support schools. This could include using college staff to deliver Senior Phase courses in either face-to-face or online settings.
We would expect that an Islands Communities Impact Assessment would be undertaken as part of the merger process. Reflecting Scottish Government guidance, this needs to include the impacts on the Gaelic language.
