External assessment consists of an Oral (10 minutes maximum) and an external exam covering listening, reading, literature and writing (presenting an argument from careers/food and health/the media/general matters). PROGRESSION: Progression to Sabhal Mor Ostaig, the Skye campus of the University of the Highlands and Islands. A wide range of Gaelic-related job opportunities, especially in light of the number of organisations that now have Gaelic Language Plans. Cost of Course: £189.00.
