Minister of State for Gaeltacht Affairs Dinny McGinley TD will officially open the new premises of Irish language training company Gaelchultúr later today, 29 January 2013 at 11 Clare Street, Dublin 2.
The new space is two and half times bigger than Gaelchultúr’s former venue in Filmbase, Temple Bar and symbolises the significant developments in the company’s work over the past few years.

As well as the new venue, Minister McGinley will also launch the next term of the company’s new FETAC course – Certificate in Professional Irish (Levels 3–6).

Gaelchultúr ’s first specialised FETAC accredited course for public sector bodies, Teastas sa Ghaeilge Ghairmiúil/Certificate in Professional Irish, began in October.

The next Teastas sa Ghaeilge Ghairmiúil course commences ag the beginning of February and will be available at two levels: level 3 (Beginner/Elementary) and level 4 (Lower Intermediate) on the National Framework of Qualifications.

The course is aimed at public sector employees who wish to improve their spoken and written Irish; staff members in public bodies which come under the aegis of the Official Languages Act 2003 and staff members in the above organisations who are required to provide a service through Irish to the public.
