In Queensland, community language schools (CLS) that wish to apply for a grant are required to enter into an agreement with the Department of Education.
In November each year, currently funded CLS will receive a notification explaining the application process. This includes the service agreement template, the electronic student attendance roll template and a link to the online application. CLS need to complete these in the following time frames:
- Service agreement — to be completed and submitted by mid-January of each year for grant payment in February of the following year.
- Online application — to be completed and submitted by the end of December each year.
- Student attendance roll — student attendance should be entered throughout the year and submitted in December of each year. It will be used to calculate the grant payment in February of the following year.
