The Gaelic Immersion Courses for Education Practitioners grants scheme is now open for 2024/25 applications.

The scheme is designed to provide support for local authorities to sponsor qualified teachers or ELC practitioners, who have some Gaelic skills and are not currently teaching through the medium of Gaelic, to undertake a year-long Gaelic immersion course so that they subsequently teach through the medium of Gaelic for the local authority.

Up to £50,000 per teacher is available to those that are successful through the scheme, with a total budget of £150,000 available to the scheme.
