Gaelic language plan 2022 to 2027

Third iteration of our Gaelic language plan - produced under the Gaelic Language (Scotland) Act 2005. It outlines the steps we are taking to support Gaelic and Gaelic speakers within our internal operations.

Ministerial Foreword

As Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills with responsibility for Gaelic, I am very pleased to support the publication of the Scottish Government's third Gaelic Language Plan, which has been produced under the Gaelic Language (Scotland) Act 2005.

The Scottish Government remains committed to supporting Gaelic and aims to ensure that those who wish to live their lives through the language are afforded the opportunities to so. The commitments in this edition of the Plan aim to build upon those that have been in place since the publication of our first Plan in 2010. In addition to the operational commitments, our Plan sets out clearly the other actions that we are taking through our policies in supporting the Gaelic language against the Scottish Government's National Performance Framework. These policies ensure that Gaelic is supported across our area of operations and Scottish public life.

I hope that you agree that this edition of the Scottish Government's Gaelic Language Plan is helping create a supportive environment for the Gaelic language.

Shirley-Anne Somerville MSP

Cabinet Secretary for Education & Skills
