      Description

      School education in Scotland through the medium of Gaelic is central to planning the future of the language. The statutory National Gaelic Language Plan 2012-17 intends that the number of pupils entering Gaelic-medium education should at least double from 400 to 800 by 2017, after which it is expected that the size of the sector will continue to grow in response to parental choice. There will thus have to be a significant new stream of graduates able to teach through the medium of Gaelic.
