Gaelic Language Learning
The Gaelic Language Learning (GLL) Training Course is designed for teachers who have little or no knowledge of Gaelic. The aim of the course is that on completion, teachers are equipped with both the necessary Gaelic language skills and teaching methodology to deliver Gaelic as L2 or L3 from early to 2nd level.
The Training Course consists of 18 units covering a variety of topics and functional language.

Learning another language can help your brain to work better!
Quite simply, two languages are better than one and it’s Scotland’s language.
Research has shown that, on average, people with two languages possess better cognitive and language skills than those who have only one language.
The Scottish Government’s policy, Language Learning in Scotland: A 1+2 Approach, is aimed at ensuring that every child has the opportunity to learn a modern language from P1 onwards and should have the right to learn a second modern language from P5 onwards.
GLL (formerly GLPS) is a distinct programme providing training, support and resources to equip teachers with the necessary Gaelic language skills and teaching methodology to deliver Gaelic as L2 or L3 from Early to Second Level in the primary school.
