Tha SQA agus na buidhnean a bh’ ann roimhe air dealas làidir a chumail suas don Ghàidhlig thar iomadach bliadhna. Tha Teisteanasan Nàiseanta dha Gàidhlig (Luchd-ionnsachaidh) agus Gàidhlig rim faotainn aig Inntrigeadh 3, Nàiseanta 3, Nàiseanta 4, Nàiseanta 5, Eadar-mheadhanach 1, Eadar-mheadhanach 2, Àrd ̀re agus An Àrd ̀re Adhartach. Tha SQA air teisteanasan a leasachadh cuideachd ann an roinnean foghlaim adhartach agus àrd-fhoghlaim ann an Alba, gus a dhèanamh cinnteach gu bheil feumalachdan Gàidhlig na coimhearsnachd ionnsachaidh is obrach air an coileanadh aig gach ́re fileantachd sa chànan.  

Gu làithreach, tha àireamh de dheuchainnean tro mheadhan na Gàidhlig aig ́re Nàiseanta 5 agus Àrd ̀re rim faotainn tro SQA – Cruinn-ẹlas; Eachdraidh; Matamataig; Matamataig Fad-bheatha agus Nuadh-ẹlas. Tha modailean ùra inntrigidh, teisteanachaidh, eadar-theangachaidh agus comharrachaidh air an leasachadh do na Cùrsaichean sin, gus a dhèanamh cinnteach gu bheil tiotalan Chùrsaichean agus Aonadan uile a tha air an cosnadh tro mheadhan na Gàidhlig air an aithris ann an Gàidhlig air Barantas Theisteanas na h-Alba (SQC) aig na tagraichean. Tha aithrisean aithneachaidh air an clàradh cuideachd air a’ chlàr ruigsinneachd Mhionaideach airson a shealltainn gun deach an Cùrsa a mheasadh agus a chosnadh tro mheadhan na Gàidhlig.

Tha SQA dealasach a thaobh na roinne Foghlam tro Mheadhan na Gàidhlig (GME), agus ann an co-rèir ris a’ Phlana Ghàidhlig againn tha sinn ag amas air togail air an t-solar làithreach agus a chumail suas, le bhith a’ solarachadh stuthan taic agus a’ leudachadh an raoin a th’ againn de chuspairean tro mheadhan na Gàidhlig a tha rim faotainn ann an àrd-sgoiltean agus colaistean. 

Tha e air a bhith comasach do SQA ́re làidir de thaic a thoirt seachad don chànan tro fhoillseachadh agus cleachdadh fad’ is farsaing air Gnàthachas Litreachaidh na Gàidhlig (4.08 MB), agus dealas àrd-́reil leantainneach don chànan.

Tha sinn a’ tairgsinn theisteanasan a tha freagarrach do na h-uile bho luchd-ionnsachaidh gu fileantaich. Leughaibh tuilleadh ma dheidhinn ann am bileag solair don Ghàidhlig againn.

SQA and its predecessor bodies have maintained a strong commitment to the Gaelic Language for many years. National Qualifications for Gaelic (Learners) and Gàidhlig are available at Access 3, National 3, National 4, National 5, Intermediate 1, Intermediate 2, Higher and Advanced Higher levels. SQA has also developed qualifications in the further and higher education sectors in Scotland to ensure that the needs of the Gaelic learning and working community are addressed across all levels of fluency in the language.

SQA currently makes a number of National 5 and Higher examinations available through the medium of Gaelic — Geography (Cruinn-eòlas); History (Eachdraidh); Mathematics (Matamataig), Lifeskills Mathematics (Matamataig Fad-bheatha); and Modern Studies (Nuadh-eòlas). New models of entry, certification, translation and marking for these Courses have been developed to ensure that Course titles and all Units attained through the medium of Gaelic are reported in Gaelic on candidates’ Scottish Qualifications Certificate (SQC). There are also recognition statements reported on the Detailed record of attainment to indicate that the Course was assessed and attained through the medium of Gaelic.

SQA is committed to the Gaelic-medium education (GME) sector, and in line with our Gaelic Language Plan, we aim to maintain and build on current provision by providing support materials and expanding our range of Gaelic Medium subjects available in secondary schools and colleges.

SQA has also been able to provide a strong level of support for the language with its widely-used publication Gaelic Orthographic Conventions (4.08 MB), and a continuing and high-level commitment to the language.

We offer qualifications suitable for everyone from learners to fluent speakers. Read more in our provision for Gaelic leaflet.
