As part of the Youth Music Initiative, the Creative Arts in Schools Team (CAST) have run CPD sessions in 2018-9 using Get Creative, a new music resource for primary school teachers full of creative ideas, activities and learning outcomes to enable you to deliver musical activities with your class, regardless of your musical experience.
There are spaces available on this year’s GLPS course.
The training programme is held at Stirling Court Hotel and is centrally funded.
Those who have undertaken the GLPS training in the past are full of praise for the tools and confidence it has given them to deliver Gaelic Language Learning in their settings. The closing date for the participants to put their name forward via their Headteacher is Friday 9th September 2016

Vision, Values and Aims:
UHI, together with Highland Council, Shetland Islands Council, Orkney Islands Council, Comhairle nan Eilean, Moray Council and Argyll and Bute Council was successful in applying for funds to facilitate Masters-level learning for teachers.
The programme will commence on Monday 8 September. Included below are the selection criterion. Please note that as this is Master-level learning applicants should hold an Honours Degree. Our aim is to complete the selection process before the start of the summer break so that successful individuals have sufficient time to do a bit of background reading over the holiday period.
