National Strategy and Language Supports needed to support Teachers in the Immersion Education System

 “The findings of recently-published research regarding the views, experience, and opinions of subject teachers in Gaelcholáistí confirm our understanding that huge challenges exist around lack of fluency and lack of confidence among teachers who teach subjects through Irish in the all-Irish education system, challenges which affect teaching practice in the classroom,” according to Bláthnaid ní Ghréacháin, CEO of Gaeloideachas.

Gaeloideachas welcomes new plan for Early Years Education, but additional support needed for Naíonraí

Gaeloideachas welcomes the publication of the reforms announced by the Department of Children to support the early learning sector, which will ensure increased investment and assist in developing the profession of early years educators. However, the organisation recommends that targeted support should be provided to naíonraí due to the additional costs and challenges associated with providing their service through the medium of Irish.
