Gaelic skills

28th January 2000 at 00:00
CNSA, the Gaelic Pre-school Council, would very much like to hear from trained nursery nurses, nursery teachers and primary teachers who are presently working in English medium education. We would also like to hear from people with a similar background, who are at this time unemployed.

Given that one has the above skills, we are then seeking people who come within three categories - complete beginners in Gaelic; teachers who understand or speak a little Gaelic; and Gaelic speakers who can neither read nor write fluently in the language.

The reason for our interest is that we are seeking people with these skills to work in Gaelic education, where there is a severe shortage of taff. If you believe that this is a good career move for you, but feel deterred for lack of a Gaelic fluency please do not be put off, as there are a number of excellent Gaelic immersion courses ongoing throughout Scotland. Such courses have proved their worth time and time again in bringing people to a Gaelic fluency in the shortest time possible.

I certainly cannot promise you an easy time, especially at the beginning in this sphere, but I do assure you that you will find the work both rewarding and meaningful. If you would like information about this work, please contact me on 01463-225469.
