This post will be responsible for developing and delivering a dedicated, innovative Gaelic digital resource; to include digital and social content, discounts, rewards opportunities and entitlements for young people using the Young Scot National Entitlement Card.
Hosted on Young.Scot and launched to celebrate the Year of Young People 2018, the resource will connect young people to opportunities to engage with the Gaelic language, culture and heritage, whilst ensuring that information on core Young Scot services is available in written format for the Gaelic audience.
The project will provide a platform for existing networks, support and develop connections to spaces and activities for young speakers to grow their skills and stimulate new pathways, whilst supporting learning, understanding and engagement for non-Gaelic speakers.
The project has been funded by Bòrd na Gàidhlig, supporting their National Gaelic Language Plan to promote, increase use and learning of the language. Bòrd na Gàidhlig will support the project through membership of a project steering group, to also include MG Alba.
