National Statement for Languages Education in Australian Schools

Ministerial Council on Education, Employment, Training and Youth Affairs
Ministers of Education are committed to the vision of quality languages education for all students, in all schools, in all parts of the country. We believe that through learning languages our students and the broader Australian community gain important benefits. Realising this vision will require quality programs and quality teachers. Quality teachers need supportive conditions including opportunities for ongoing professional learning. Effective languages programs also require whole school support, particularly from school leaders and the involvement of the wider community.
