NATIONAL PROJECT - Supporting Community Languages Education 2015-2019

"This project is funded by the Australian Government through the Schools Languages Programme, administered by the Department of Education and Training

The Australian Government has provided funding to Community Languages Australia to strengthen the national coordination and quality assurance of after-hours ethnic/community language schools.

Project objectives are:

  • Improved early learning, schooling, student educational outcomes and transitions to and from school through access to quality support, parent engagement, quality teaching and learning environments. 
  • Community languages play an important part in maintaining the diversity of languages and cultures in Australia and learning of community languages during school years contributes to the cohesion of the social and cultural tapestry of Australia. Community Languages Australia offers options to communities who are keen to maintain their language and cultural heritage which are not available through any other single system. 

The Funding will support:

  • community languages education for Australian school students, improving those students’ learning outcomes;
  • community languages schools providing quality community languages education to support the Australian Government’s languages education targets for Australian school students; and
    professional development of community languages teachers.
