Become a Gaelic Champion

We know many colleagues already have a keen interest in Gaelic but may not know how to become more involved in the council family's Gaelic work.

We need Gaelic Champions in every area of the council family to join the Gaelic Officers' Group who oversee the delivery of our Gaelic Language Plan. Please contact Donald MacPhee, Gaelic Development Officer for more information at donald.macphee@glasgow.gov.uk

Gaelic skills survey

Take part in the Gaelic skills staff survey to tell us if you are you fluent, currently learning or simply interested in Gaelic.
