Gaelic Language Classes (360G-BNG-2324_3040)

This application from North Lanarkshire Council is to enhance the provision of Gaelic Language classes to adult learners across the authority. There are currently over 50 requests to join Gaelic classes and if successful, this project will provide provision to meet this demand as well as future requests. North Lanarkshire council aims to support the Faster Rate of Progress initiative and firmly believes that by increasing the number of Gaelic speakers within our authority this will in turn benefit and promote the Gaelic language workforce across the authority and across Scotland. Gaelic Language class provision  will create a higher level of community engagement leading to increased productivity of Gaelic agencies allowing learners to upskill to achieve fluency and finally lead to the creation of a new Gaelic speaking workforce. In accordance with North Lanarkshire’s Gaelic Language Plan, the provision of Gaelic language classes and the promotion of the language is expected to have a number of positive effects within North Lanarkshire and ties in with the priorities and ambition of inclusive growth and prosperity. • An increase in the number of parents sending their children to Gaelic Medium Education. • An increase in the number of learners that further their language skills through immersion courses offered by partner agencies. • Increases levels of attendees at Gaelic community events. • Promotion of Gaelic provision and opportunities within the wider community. • Gaelic learners will be encouraged to use their skills within their place of work. • Gaelic learners will be encouraged to take up work within the Gaelic sector and North Lanarkshire Council will provide opportunities for this when available. • Guidance and support will be offered by North Lanarkshire council for any Gaelic speakers that wish to take part in Gaelic events offered by Gaelic agencies.
