Consultation Paper on a Gaelic Medium Education Bill, 02/07/14 - 10/09/14 [S]

This is a Scottish Government (SG) consultation paper on Gaelic medium education.

Views are invited on Gaelic medium education in general and specifically on the proposal to introduce legislation to the Scottish Parliament aimed at expanding and improving access to Gaelic medium education in Scotland.

The principal SG proposal in this paper is that a clear, transparent and consistent process should be put in place whereby authorities can assess parental requests for Gaelic medium education. There are also proposals about the promotion of Gaelic medium education and the preparation of guidance on these matters.

This consultation paper will not invite views on a piece of draft legislation which the SG has prepared previously. Our aim in this exercise is to invite views on particular proposals relating to Gaelic medium education. The views received will be important in shaping the legislation that we intend to prepare for Parliament.

For full details please see the Scottish Government website.
