We are seeking to make the appointment of an External Examiner for our successful STREAP Programme, postgraduate teaching certificate in Gaelic medium education, to start immediately. This post will normally be for a period of 4 years but will be dependent on continued funding from Scottish Government.

This postgraduate programme was developed jointly by Sabhal Mòr Ostaig UHI, and the University of Aberdeen, in consultation with key staff from local authorities and experienced Gaelic medium teachers. Both the development and delivery of this programme have been funded by the Scottish Government. Our STREAP programme aims to meet the needs of fully qualified educationalists who want to enhance and extend professional practice in the teaching of subject/stage through the medium of Gaelic.

The programme covers a range of theoretical, historical and policy perspectives – interpretive, social, creative – relating to immersion and bilingual teaching and the promotion of Gaelic Medium Education.

It develops participants’ personal Gaelic language skills, competence and confidence in classroom practice and critical reflection in the Gaelic medium context.

We require an examiner who currently works on related courses within Higher Education, who is fluent in Gaelic and experience of Gaelic Medium Education. However, we will consider candidates with other relevant experience.
