BBC Gaeilge launches new digital education series for Irish language students

BBC is reporting that Céim in Airde is a new BBC Northern Ireland seven part digital series produced by BBC Gaeilge to support pupils through the CCEA, GCE A2 Unit 3 Irish examination.

The series focuses on Unit 3 – Extended Writing – and provides analysis, tips, hints and advice to support students in preparation for the exam.

Céim in Airde provides materials which aid students and teachers to achieve the key learning outcomes of the revised GCE A2 specification.

“In keeping with BBC Northern Ireland’s commitment to support schools, BBC Gaeilge recognise the need to support teachers and pupils in the Irish language,” says Céim in Airde presenter, Conall Ó Máirtín.

“As a former teacher I know that quality resources to aid teaching and revision are in great demand and with the changes in the specification for Irish A Level, BBC Gaeilge wants to support those learning the language as they seek to gain academic qualifications in the subject.’

“Our downloadable content and study notes will enable students to have their study content on their mobile devices, allowing them to take the classroom with them as they finalise their preparations for their exams.”

BBC Gaeilge Assistant Editor, Róisín Kelleher, says: “This is a short education series for those wishing to raise their heads from the books for a while, and also forms part of our ongoing and longstanding commitment in BBC Gaeilge to provide specialist educational content and relevant supporting material.”
