The Australian Curriculum:
A national forum on the Australian Curriculum:
Languages was held on Monday 25 October.
The purpose of the forum was to provide participants with the opportunity to provide feedback on the Initial Advice Paper for Languages.
A wide range of stakeholders/ representatives from all states and territories across a wide range of languages, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages, attended the forum. There were over 150 participants including teachers across the stages of schooling, principals, academics, government, state and territory education authorities, professional education associations, and community groups. A revised version of the paper will now be prepared and distributed as the Draft Shape of the Australian Curriculum: Languages paper for a 10 week period of national consultation. It is envisaged that this paper will be released in December.
