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 Government of Ireland has stated that it intends to bring the majority of public health restrictions in the country to an end on October 22nd. Accordingly, we are planning to provide this course in-person. These arrangements are subject to approval by Marino Institute of Education and the on-going public health advice. If it is not possible to proceed in-person an online alternative will be provided.

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

Our courses will proceed this year only if they can do so 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 2021-22.
