Lews Castle College UHI is developing new training opportunities for local businesses with Scottish Union Learning.
The College offers a range of professionally accredited training and development courses for organisations – ranging from short commercial courses to individual workshops and bespoke training.
The College is currently working with the Scottish Union Learning to provide a range of learning and development options for the range of employers. Most recently Lews castle College has worked with the Rail, Maritime and Transport Union to provide Gaelic Language classes for several of their members across Scotland.
Dan Henderson of the RMT, said, “We are delighted to work once again with Lews Castle College, the opportunity to learn the Gaelic Language online has been very well received and we hope that its success will encourage others to take up other opportunities that the college and ourselves offer."
Fiona Borland of CalMac is currently taking the course and said: “I have always wanted to learn Gaelic so was really pleased to get the opportunity to do so through my job. The classes were online and very easy to access. The tutor was fantastic, and I could email her with any questions I had.”
