Community language schools in Queensland
The Queensland Government recognises the value and importance of students of all ages learning another language.
Global schools through languages (PDF, 1.5MB) is the government’s plan for developing successful global citizens in Queensland state schools. It acknowledges the commitment to supporting community language schools (CLS) by the Department of Education.
CLS help to preserve and celebrate different cultures. Learning a language can also:
- give students the confidence to communicate across languages and cultures
- open doors to further study and personal and career opportunities
Financial support is available for community not-for-profit CLS that are eligible and choose to
apply for a grant.
