The Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment has engaged the Australian Federation of Modern Language Teachers Associations (AFMLTA) to undertake this project with key stakeholders, nationally.
The purpose of this project is to develop a National Languages Plan and Strategy for languages education in Australia. The objective is to support the Australian Government efforts to increase the uptake of language learning in schools.
Teachers of languages and interested stakeholders were involved in online Focus Groups during August-September.
A National Summit was also held in July 2021 with representatives from jurisdictions and national organisations.
