A guidelines document has been prepared to assist community language schools in understanding the application process. The information found in the guidelines is also presented in relevant sections of this site.


Application form

An application form is to be completed and submitted along with supporting documentation. The same application form is to be completed regardless of whether a school is applying for accreditation for the first time, or has been accredited in previous years.


Note that if your school has been previously accredited, but wishes to have a new campus accredited, you must contact DET directly in order to complete additional documentation.


Supporting documentation

Community language schools are required to provide evidence to support their application for accreditation or re-accreditation. Note that the supporting documentation requires the use of two additional templates.Specific instructions on the use of these templates is found in the Guidelines document.


Instructions for submission

In order to ensure guidelines are followed and that applications can be processed efficiently, at least two members of the school (including the Principal) must take responsibility for:

  • reading the guidelines
  • checking the accuracy of information provided
  • checking completeness of documentation.
