SCG/OCG Courses

OCG and SCG are courses for school teachers in the Republic of Ireland who have qualified abroad. The schemes allow teachers to learn Irish while working. One of the requirements in both schemes is that candidates attend Irish courses at recognized providers in the Gaeltacht. Oideas Gael is a recognized provider for this.

We provide specialized preparatory courses for the SCG/OCG exams also.

The Teaching Council has indicated that it wants all SCG/OCG Gaeltacht courses for the 2021/22 academic year to revert to the pre-COVID traditional face to face arrangement which includes the immersive experience in the Gaeltacht. Accordingly, we will provide these courses in-person in Gleann Cholm Cille.

During the summer, language courses run weekly from June until the end of August. All are recognised for SCG/OCG weeks in the Gaeltacht.

COVID-19
Courses will be provided in line with Government of Ireland health advice. There may be some changes to the course format in light of updated health guidelines. Please see our information page on COVID-19 and Oideas Gael’s Course Programme 2022.
