The main priority areas at Early Years, Gaelic Medium Education, Gaelic language activities, young people and adult learning. The Iomairt has a Steering Group which meets every three months to discuss and priorities where resources should be targeted.
Gaelic Medium Education, supporting parents with Gaelic and activities for young people form a large part of our work. The Parental Advisory Scheme is one of the main ways we use to encourage those considering GME.
Parents who are interested in Gaelic Medium Education in Acharacle, Mallaig and Fort William should contact the schools to register their child. Registration must be completed by the end of February. The Iomairt is committed to supporting those interested in GME and parental advocates are available to anyone with questions about GME - Parental Advisory Scheme
The Iomairt has been working with various partners to organise and deliver the John Muir Award through the medium of Gaelic. This is open to learners and fluent speakers in Mallaig and Ardnamurchan High Schools and will begin in early February. See Young People for more details.
Ùlpan classes will be starting in Lochaber in the coming months. Please see Adult Learning for more information. There are also informal events being organised to support those who are learning Gaelic. Details will be posted in this website.
The next meeting of the Steering Group will take place at An Drochaid, Claggan, Fort William on the 23rd of February 2012 starting at 1900. These meetings review progress since the last meeting, advise on work plans and projects and take decisions on how the area budget will be spent. Fàilte oirbh!
