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.

OCG/SCG Exam Preparation Course Gleann Cholm Cille €210 Book now

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.

SCG/OCG Exam Preparation Courses

Our Exam Preparation Course begins at 2pm Monday and finishes at 4pm Friday. Course fee is €210. Accommodation, if required, may be organised from Monday onwards (please indicate your preference when booking your course).
