Council Gaelic Language Plan 2017-22

The Council and Gaelic community representatives established a new group to engage with stakeholders to develop the Council's new Gaelic Language Plan 2017-22. 

The group was chaired by the Council's Gaelic Champion, Councillor Lewis Ritchie. It aimed to 

  • undertake a review of 0-18 provision for Gaelic Medium Education (GME), 
  • set out a clear plan for GME growth in this age group 
  • develop a new Gaelic Language Plan with the 0-18 GME strategy at its heart.
