Spòrs Gàidhlig will work in partnership with schools throughout Scotland. Our activities, camps and programmes provide opportunities for pupils to use Gaelic and learn more about various curricular elements in a supportive and positive environment.
Many of our events and programmes are based around the key elements of the Curriculum for Excellence and offer considerable opportunity for learners to challenge themselves and learn more.
We aim to work with three key user groups:
Gaelic speaking young people - Those who are fluent or close to fluency. This might be through Gaelic in the home or by attending a Gaelic medium school or unit.
Gaelic learners - Those learning the language at both primary and secondary levels. This could be through GLPS, Gaelic as a second language or taster sessions.
Those not engaged with Gaelic - Everyone else! We are very keen to work with schools who might like an event with a Gaelic flavour. Participants would have the added advantage of an introduction to Gaelic in a supportive and fun setting.
We operate within all current legislation and within the guidance of local authorities. Spòrs Gàidhlig's parent organisation, Comunn na Gàidhlig, has a strong track record in delivering programmes and events in partnership with schools and local authorities.
All of our staff are trained in child protection and members of the PVG Scheme (Protection of Vulnerable Groups). This means they have all gone through a disclosure application.
Our child protection policy is comprehensive and our maximum leader:participant ratio is 1:10.
For activities such as skiing, bushcraft, cycling and others, we always use qualified staff who have achieved a recognised national government body award in the relevant discipline.
