Spòrs Gàidhlig and COVID-19

Spòrs Gàidhlig will follow all advice issued by the Scottish Government with regards to gatherings of people, camps and events.  We also work closely with schools and local authorities and will ensure we follow their advice. 

 

At the current moment, we are not deliverying activities or offering Gaelic residentials. This will remain the situation until at least the 13th of June we think. We are still open and working from home and you can contact us at fios@spors.scot and through our Facebook page.  

 

If schools close or the Government issues advice and direction against public gatherings, we will follow that advice. 

 

We still hope that our summer camps programme will go ahead (Campa Sradagan x2 and Campa Fhèis Spòrs) although at this moment, we can't be sure. There are still places available on all of these camps and more and we will refund in full any fees paid if the events do not take place.  

 

In the meantime, we do understand the concern of children, parents, schools and communities. We must all work together in this situation and we will update this page. our Facebook page and our Twitter feed as the situation develops. 

 

Take care and look after everyone!

 

Instructor Training Programme

Spòrs Gàidhlig will be recruiting two trainee instructors to start in September 2018. The recruitment process will begin in Spring 2018.  

Fluency in Gaelic is the most important thing for us when considering who to appoint to these positions. 

The instructor training programme aims to create new, Gaelic speaking, instructors, capable of delivering various activities to young people. The programme's objective is to create instructors for Spòrs Gàidhlig. It is not a general workforce development programme.  

We provide an attractive package that includes a training programme at Glenmore Lodge, accommodation at Glenmore Lodge, salary and instructor equipment. In return, we expect trainees to be self-starting and able to manage their own time effectively so that they gain the skills, knowledge and experience necessary to lead activities.  

There are four main components of the instructor training programme:

  1. Formal training courses at Glenmore Lodge and with other providers. 
  2. Placements in schools, outdoor centres and other organisations. 
  3. Experience acquisition.  
  4. Support work in Glenmore Lodge stores.

The programme includes courses such as Summer Mountain Leader Training, UK Mountain Bike Leader Scheme, National Navigation Award Scheme, Single Pitch Award, First Aid course, Snowsport Scotland Ski Instructor, Gorge-Ghyll Leader, Orienteering and Category D1 driving.  

If you are interested in this programme, you should examine the pre-requisites for the above awards and decide if you would be able to successfully pass the courses. For example, for the Summer Mountain Leader, you will need 20 quality mountain days before you can undertake the training. It is critical that any candidates understand the training awards involved in our Instructor Training Programme.
