Scottish university announces plans to promote Gaelic language

At Scotland's Gaelic cultural festival, the National Mod, being held in Inverness this week, the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) has announced new plans to promote Gaelic at its 13 centres. UHI has set out a strategy to develop the use of Gaelic through its curriculum and communications until 2018. Proposals include producing more bilingual resources, encouraging staff to learn Gaelic as part of their development plans and holding more Gaelic events. One of the new Gaelic-related courses provided by the university is a professional graduate diploma in primary education. This includes an option for people to train as Gaelic-medium primary teachers. Other commitments include increasing the amount of student web content available in Gaelic and running Gaelic careers events.
