Is é príomhaidhm an chláir seo ná tacú le fás agus forbairt na Gaeilge i gCeanada. Cuirtear teagascóirí ar fáil chun an Ghaeilge a mhúineadh taobh istigh den ollscoil, agus chun cuidiú le dul chun cinn na teanga i mbéal an phobail.

Tugtar deis do mhúinteoirí reatha barr feabhais a chur ar a gcuid scileanna múinteoireachta agus cur lena n-eolas faoi shocaí agus faoi chultúr Cheanada ionas gur féidir leo tarraingt orthu tar éis dóibh filleadh ar Éirinn.

Gach bliain ceaptar méid áirithe teagascóirí chun teagasc inár n-ollscoileanna comhpháirtíochta i gCeanada. Seo a leanas liosta na n-ollscoileanna comhpháirtíochta:

  • University of Prince Edward Island, Prince Edward Island
  • Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec
  • St. Mary’s University, Halifax, Nova Scotia
  • St. Thomas University, Fredericton, New Brunswick
  • University of Ottawa, Ontario
  • University of Alberta, Edmonton

Sonraí na gCeapachán 2018:

  • Dáta tosaigh na dámhachtana: 1 Meán Fómhair 2018
  • Méid na dámhachtana: €1,750 in aghaidh na míosa don tréimhse Meán Fómhair 2018 –Aibréan / Bealtaine 2019
  • Tabharfar liúntas airgid do theagascóirí chun costas eitiltí, árachas leighis agus iarratais víosa a chlúdú.
  • Cóiríocht:  Beidh ranníocaíocht ar fáil ó na hollscoileanna óstacha chun costas na cóiríochta a chlúdach.
  • Táthar ag súil go gceapfar triúr teagascóirí ar a laghad i mbliana.

Tabhair do d’aire go bhfuil Rialtas Cheanada ag tabhairt víosaí IEC (International Experience Canada) do Theagascóirí ICUF. Eisítear na víosaí seo do dhaoine idir 18 agus 35 bliana d’aois. Dá réir sin, ní mór d’iarratasóir bheith idir 18 agus 35 bliana d’aois le bheith incheaptha mar Theagascóir Gaeilge (an dá aois sin san áireamh) ar an 31 Lúnasa 2018.
