Gaeloideachas support and represent Irish language-medium schools both inside and outside the Gaeltacht. Irish language-medium schools are also supported and represented by An Chomhairle um Oideachas Gaeltachta agus Gaelscolaíochta or COGG

Gaeloideachas is a national Irish organisation supporting the development of Irish-medium immersion schools at preschool (outside the Gaeltacht) and primary and secondary levels on the island of Ireland.[1]

They were established as Gaelscoileanna Teo. in 1973 and kept that name and remit of supporting Gaelscoileanna until 2014 when they were appointed by Foras na Gaeilge to be one of the six lead Foras na Gaeilge-funded Irish language organisations- with a responsibility for the support of Irish-language medium education at preschool (outside the Gaeltacht) and primary and second-levels across the island of Ireland.[2]

In 2016 they changed their name to Gaeloideachas.[3]
