Programs for community languages schools

Professional development for teachers, principals and members of management
committees of community languages schools

The incredibly popular Certificate in Language Teaching will run again in 2016. The certificate course has been delivered by The University of Sydney on behalf of the NSW Department of Education since 2011. In 2016 we may also be running the Certificate in Leadership and Management for principals and management committee members of government-funded community languages schools. We are also planning a Diploma in Language Teaching for teachers who have completed the certificate. The Diploma in Language Teaching and the Certificate in Leadership and Management will be targeted programs resulting from extensive consultation with past certificate students and community-languages schools. The course content, as well as the modes of delivery, supports the work and professional development of teachers, principals and members of management committees.
