Council Gaelic Language Plan 2017-22

The draft Plan for 2017-22 was published on Monday 2 October and is open for consultation until 15 December 2017.

This is the second Gaelic language plan produced by the Council and will build on the success of the first plan which saw the expansion of Gaelic Medium Education (GME), a new GME primary school Taobh na Pàirce and further development of Gaelic Learning Education at both primary and secondary school level.

The new draft plan has six themes and commitments relating to 

  • cultural
  • economy
  • education
  • workplace
  • community
  • arts and heritage
  • home and early years.

Find full details of the consultation and engagement exercise. The final Gaelic Language Plan will be approved in early 2018. It will run until September 2022.
