Gaelic Language Plan
Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education
Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education (HMIE) recognises that Gaelic is an integral part of Scotland's heritage, national identity and current cultural life. HMIE recognises that there is a need to ensure the sustainable development of Gaelic for the future and is committed to working with stakeholders and partners across the public and private sector to achieve this aspiration. In its work, HMIE will seek to: (1) enhance the status of Gaelic; (2) promote the acquisition and learning of Gaelic; and (3) encourage the increased use of Gaelic. This document is HMIE's Gaelic Language Plan, prepared within the framework of the Gaelic Language (Scotland) Act 2005. It sets out how Gaelic is used in carrying out business, how the use of Gaelic be enabled when interacting with stakeholders and partners, and how the development of Gaelic will be promoted. It is recognised that the development of Gaelic Language Plans by public bodies such as HMIE is a key component of the 2005 Act. It is recognised that the Gaelic Language Plan will help to formalise and communicate to staff, partners and stakeholders what the policy is in relation to Gaelic matters, and what Gaelic services they can expect to access through HMIE. HMIE aims to build on current partnerships to support the work of the Gaelic Language Plan. To help achieve the targets in the Gaelic Language Plan, members will work closely with partners such as Learning and Teaching Scotland (LTS), Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA), Scottish Funding Council (SFC); and local authorities. Numbers and information about Gaelic are appended. (Contains 2 footnotes.) [This plan has been prepared under section 3 of the Gaelic Language (Scotland) Act 2005.]
