Great teachers are at the heart of Gaelic education, and in Scotland, any teacher must have a suitable University level qualification to achieve Professional Registration with the General Teaching Council Scotland (GTCS).

In addition to the GTCS booklet “So you want to teach in Gaelic?” a Padlet has been created to bring together and share the various routes into Gaelic teaching, along with some useful resources.  The digital noticeboard can be accessed by scanning the QR code using your device.  For ease, we have grouped pathways according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) which will enable you to assess your level of spoken Gaelic and therefore equip you with the ability to choose a Gaelic language course suitable to your needs.

So, whether you want to study Gaelic Education at undergraduate or postgraduate level, teach Gaelic as a subject, teach a secondary subject through the medium of Gaelic, or are a qualified teacher looking to transfer into Gaelic medium, we hope you find this online resource to be helpful.
