How is funding calculated?

Funding is calculated according to eligible student attendance plus a base amount of $1,500 for each community language school (CLS).

What if our CLS doesn’t want to apply for funding?

There is no obligation for CLS to apply for Department of Education (DoE) funding.

However, non-funded CLS using DoE premises still need to complete the insurance information form (DOC, 474KB).

What is the curriculum?

To be eligible to receive funding, CLS must have a language program that aligns with one of the following:

Do we have to implement the Australian Curriculum: Languages?

Continue to use the current Queensland curriculum until further advice is provided.

How do I write units of work and lesson plans?

Sample language programs for Years 4, 5, 6 and for Year 7 Semester 1 are available from the Ethnic Schools Association of Queensland (ESAQ) Inc.

These language programs align with the current Queensland curriculum and are provided in English for CLS to convert into the appropriate language.

DoE may ask to view a CLS language program at any time throughout the year. Please ensure that the programs are kept up to date and that there is a master copy filed in a secure place.

Will students have homework?

Individual CLS make their own decisions in relation to homework. Students in senior classes are likely to need extra study as they prepare for their examinations.
