Following on from various conversations with Gaelic organisations who expressed the view that more direct support for encouraging and supporting the use of Gaelic was required in the traditional communities, Bòrd na Gàidhlig now wants to establish a pilot project to increase the impact of the work of the Gaelic officers and provide them with increased support and development.
There is a growing number of third sector organisations which employ Gaelic officers working with various communities in Scotland. Many of these roles are funded by Bòrd na Gàidhlig along with other public bodies, and many of the officers are the sole Gaelic officer within a wider organisation.
Should any organisations wish to submit an application to tender for the delivery of this pilot, they must register with Public Contracts Scotland (PCS) and then email email@example.com to let us know that this has been done. The tender closes at 12pm, 2 February 2021.
