The Shieling Project has a huge potential to inspire all its visitors to appreciate and learn Gaelic. From the stories, songs and place-names of shieling life, to inclusion of Gaelic within tasks and routines around the site, the project can show fluent speakers, learners and those totally new to the language the rich weave of Gaelic within the landscape. For all visitors, a significant proportion of daily life at the Shieling Project should be in Gaelic, and for those wishing a fully Gaelic immersion residential, this should also be part of the project provision.
The Gaelic Education Officer will be responsible for developing this potential. This post will include delivering bilingual educational experiences at the site, producing new resources, including online learning, and supporting other staff at the project. You will work with another educator, and other project staff delivering outdoor learning to children and young people during school trips and summer camps. You will also work with teachers during their visits and training workshops, as well as our local volunteers, to deliver high quality educational activities.
