PublishingPageContent

Community language schools (CLS) are eligible for initial set-up funding from the Department of Education (DoE) if they have been operating for a minimum of 6 months, have a minimum of 6 students and meet the eligibility requirements. Complete the application for set-up funding (DOC, 397KB) and submit the application, along with the required attachments, to communitylanguageschools@qed.qld.gov.au.​

Eligibility requirements

The set-up funding is based on eligible student enrolments.

To be eligible to receive funding, a CLS must:

  • have an ABN (Australian Business Number)
  • have a bank account in the name of the CLS—funding will only be deposited into a bank account in the name of the CLS
  • ensure everyone working with students in the CLS holds a current blue card and that your CLS has a Child and youth risk management strategy in place
  • be registered as a charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission
  • have notified DoE that your CLS is operational (operational means that classes have commenced) if you are a newly-established CLS.

Additional eligibility requirements, objectives and eligible student criteria can be found in the application for set-up funding (DOC, 397KB).

Prior to receiving set-up funding, successful CLS applicants will be required to sign a letter of acceptance agreeing to the obligations and requirements of the program.

CLS will then be invited to apply for the DoE annual grant in the next round of applications.
