Gàidhlig sa Bhaile Mhòr (360G-BNG-2324_3044)


This project will continue to deliver Gaelic classes for staff in Glasgow City Council and arms-length organisations.  We have delivered Gaelic classes to 250 members of staff in the last three years with Fèisean nan Gàidheal. The 2022 Gaelic staff audit indicated that over 60% were interested in developing their Gaelic skills so these classes help us meet some of that demand.  We aim to develop and promote classes across all Services and encourage more and more of our staff to learn and use Gaelic. We receive very positive feedback with staff being grateful for the opportunity to learn. For some there is an added benefit in that they can begin to use Gaelic more within their everyday work, including two who have joined the council's Gaelic Officers Group that oversees delivery of our Gaelic Language Plan.  Classes are coordinated through the Gaelic Development Officer in the Chief Executive's Department. He liaises with colleagues in Corporate communications who help promote the classes through Staff News/Announcements and also with Service communication teams. Fèisean nan Gàidheal provide the administration of tutor and learner recruitment, and delivery of classes online on three separate evenings, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Due to budget restraints, the last block of classes was for six weeks only but we would aim to have longer sessions for future classes.
