9. Professional learning outline

This information applies to the application round for funding in 2022, which has now closed. Updated information will be provided shortly.

All CLS teaching staff must undertake a minimum of 20 hours of professional learning each year.

The CLS must provide a professional learning plan for all teaching staff for the year in which it applies for accreditation.

The Department strongly encourages CLS to participate in the professional development sessions provided by CLV. Staff who do not have a recognised qualification in languages teaching are also strongly encouraged to undertake CLV’s accredited Certificate IV in Community Languages Teaching course or Languages Methodology course.
