NATIONAL PROJECT - Improvement in the National Coordination and Quality Assurance of Ethnic Schools Project

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

The Australian Government has provided funding to Community Languages Australia until December 2006 to strengthen the national coordination and quality assurance of after-hours ethnic/community language schools.

The objectives for this project are to:

  • Strengthen national coordination and promotion of ethnic languages and ethnic schools; 
  • Strengthen and promote the quality of teaching and learning practices in ethnic schools across Australia including trialling a national quality assurance framework in 3 States and Territories; and 
  • Enhance professional networking and professional learning for personnel involved in the delivery of languages taught through ethnic schools. 

The funding will be used for national coordination and promotion of ethnic languages and schools, trialling the implementation of our Quality Assurance Framework, and facilitating professional learning and development opportunities for ethnic school managers and teachers across all States and Territories.
