Learning a second language gets funding boost

The Australian Government announced a $10m community language grants program to benefit more young Australians who want to learn a second language.

The program will fund a total of 356 community language schools across Australia which provides a base payment of $1,500 and a per capita payment of up to $60,000 in grant funding.

The grants can be used to support their operational costs such as teaching materials and resources, staff wages as well as professional development programs.

Acting Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs Alan Tudge said the grants will deliver a stronger Australia.

“Dual language skills give young Australians a competitive edge in an increasing globalised workforce, and build our capacity as a nation to engage openly and confidently with the rest of the world,” he said.

“It also strengthens social cohesion by connecting young Australians to other cultures, which is so important given our diverse multicultural society.”

Community language schools across Australia provide language programs in 70 different languages, teaching more than 100,000 school-aged children (up to year 12) after school or on weekends.

Applications for a second stream of funding, with up to $25,000 available for projects that support the community language school sector, are currently under assessment with a decision regarding outcomes to be made soon.

More information on the Program is available on GrantConnect, the Government’s community grants website www.grants.gov.au.
