    2016 Accreditation Process

    The Department of Education and Training (DET) has made a change to the accreditation process for community language schools.
    The Research Unit for Multilingualism and Cross-Cultural Communication (RUMACCC) has been appointed to help undertake the accreditation/re-accreditation of community language schools on its behalf.

    Community Languages Australia / ESAV facilitated Two Information Sessions (2/9/2016 & 5/9/2016) conducted by RUMACCC staff to explain the accreditation guidelines.
    CLA/ESAV will provide schools the necessary assistance to prepare and submit their applications for re-accreditation.
    The closing date for applications for re-accreditation is 31 October 2016 .
