Global schools through languages

A plan for supporting successful global citizens in Queensland state schools

Band2a_4x8_2

Community language schools in Queensland

Queenslanders speak more than 180 languages and come from more than 220 countries and territories.

Did you know:

  • more than 1 in 10 Queenslanders speak a language other than English at home
  • almost 2 in 5 Queenslanders were born overseas or had at least one parent born overseas?

The Queensland Government's Community language schools (CLS) program is made up of community based not-for-profit organisations which provide classes in a range of languages and cultures that make up Queensland’s multicultural diversity.

Helping our students learn another language and interact across cultures is one of the best gifts we can give them for a bright future in our globalised world. The CLS program plays an important role in helping our students develop language and cultural skills.

To learn more about Global schools through languages, view the Global schools through languages animation and Global schools through languages supporting plan (PDF, 1.6MB).

Program objective

The CLS grants program is intended to:

  • expand the number of languages available for Queensland school students to study
  • increase the number of students gaining Year 12 certification in a language.

Since 1992, the Queensland Department of Education has supported community language schools through the CLS Grant Program.

Financial support is available for community not-for-profit CLS that are eligible and choose to apply for a grant annually.
