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:

  • Memorial University, St. John’s, Newfoundland
  • University of St. Michael’s College, University of Toronto, Ontario
  • St. Mary’s University, Halifax, Nova Scotia
  • St. Thomas University, Fredericton, New Brunswick
  • University of Ottawa, Ontario
  • University of Alberta, Edmonton

Sonraí na gCeapachán 2024:

  • Dáta tosaigh na dámhachtana:    1 Meán Fómhair 2024
  • Méid na dámhachtana: €20,300 in aghaidh don tréimhse Meán Fómhair 2024 – Aibréan/Bealtaine 2025
  • Tabharfar liúntas airgid do theagascóirí chun costas eitiltí, árachas leighis agus iarratais víosa a chlúdú.
  • Cóiríocht:  Beidh ranníocaíocht (CAD$10,000-$12,500) ar fáil ó na hollscoileanna óstacha chun costas na cóiríochta a chlúdach (is féidir leis seo a bheith i bhfoirm íocaíochta le hábhar, e.g. lóistín a chur ar fáil don tréimhse).
  • 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 2024.

Irish Language Instructors

This programme exists to support the development and growth of the Irish language in Canada.  As such, the role of the Irish Language Instructor is twofold; she/he is engaged to teach the Irish Language within the university, and to support the development of the Irish Language in the wider community.

The award provides individuals with the opportunity to refine their teaching skills and extend their knowledge of Canadian society and culture, enriching their teaching work on their return to Ireland.

Each year ICUF appoints a number of Irish Language Instructors to work in our partner universities in Canada, which are as follows:

  • Memorial University, St. John’s, Newfoundland
  • University of St. Michael’s College, University of Toronto, Ontario
  • St. Mary’s University, Halifax, Nova Scotia
  • St. Thomas University, Fredericton, New Brunswick
  • University of Ottawa, Ontario
  • University of Alberta, Edmonton

Details for 2024 appointments:

  • Date of commencement of work is 1 September 2024
  • Irish Language Instructors will receive payment of €20,300 for the period September 2024 to April/May 2025.
  • ICUF also makes a contribution to cover flights, health insurance and work permit application costs
  • In respect of accommodation costs, each partner university makes a payment of CAD$10,000-$12,500 to the Irish Language Instructor in respect of accommodation for the period of engagement (this can take the form of payment in kind, e.g. the provision of accommodation for the period).
  • It is anticipated that a minimum of two Irish Language Instructors will be appointed.
