Learning and Teaching (Gaelic Arts) (subject to approval)

Royal Conservatoire of Scotland


Renfrew Street Campus


The programme is designed to allow arts education professionals to integrate their studies within their professional teaching contexts. The process of professional enquiry that underpins all modules requires students to engage in a sustained critical analysis of their teaching and arts practice in order to identify and address their own developmental priorities at each stage.

The programme culminates in a self-designed, self-generated, major-scale project that is intended to help students make a significant contribution to their learners and their professional sector. As such, we are looking for individuals who are ready to engage their creativity in developing and evolving innovative approaches to their practice as arts educators.

Applicants who have a role as an arts educator within a formal or informal context where Gaelic is the main language can use this programme to develop their knowledge and skills as an arts educator and to build an evidence-base to demonstrate their commitment to their professional learning as an arts educator working with Gaelic. For students working with Gaelic in a further or higher education context with learners at SCQF Level 7 or above (or equivalent), this programme can lead to Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy.
