Best-practice in Languages education in Victorian schools.

The Department has recently released on its FUSE website a series of Digital Stories showcasing Best-practice in Languages education in Victorian schools.

The eight videos showcase a range of innovative, whole-school approaches to the provision of high-quality and sustainable Languages programs, delivered by a range of government primary and secondary schools. Each digital story features the principal and key staff outlining the unique features of their high-quality languages program, including how Languages education has become an integral part of the school’s curriculum.
Information about the digital stories will also be showcased at an upcoming Principal Regional Conference as stimulus for school leadership teams to consider whether the models may assist in strengthening their own schools’ language program.  

There are the Digital Stories on thewebpages below and can be used by language teachers as models of best practice, but also as stimulus for principals and school leadership teams to examine their own school Language programs to see whether any of the models showcased may assist in strengthening their own language programs.

Our five first-prize winners of the 2016 Global Village Bilingual Competition in Victoria were invited to attend the World Global Village Bilingual Competition in China from 10th March to 19th March in Suzhou, China. As the accompanying teacher told that she would not be able to go with the students due to her family matters, we are looking for another teacher who can lead the student group to China during this period of time. All the airfare, accommodation and other costs involved in China will be covered by the Chinese organiser of the Competition and CLTAV will cover the cost of visa fee plus a subsidy of $300 to the teacher. Please let me know at your early convenience if you are interested. Attached please find a copy of the itinerary for your reference.
