The program does not lead to accreditation as a teacher or a professional teaching qualification, however, the coursework involved in the graduate certificate, graduate diploma and master’s degree provides both professional development for teachers and training for others to assist teachers or work in community education in Indigenous Australian languages.

The NSW Department of Education and Training accepts this program as providing appropriate training for qualified Aboriginal teachers seeking additional approval to teach an Aboriginal language.

The program has been designed to meet the need for qualified instructors to participate in the delivery of Indigenous Australian languages education programs in a range of educational settings.

The graduate certificate is completed in one semester; the graduate diploma in one and a half semesters; and the master's in two semesters (a full year).

All units of study are delivered in block mode; students are required to attend classes at the Camperdown campus for six one-week blocks each year with the remaining study taken at home.
