Prepare teaching materials
Syllabuses are available at no cost through the Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards.
These include languages syllabuses for Kindergarten to Year 12 students. Support materials are also provided to help teachers understand the syllabuses. Community languages schools use these syllabuses as the basis for their courses.

Borrow materials from the Community Languages Schools Program
Teaching resources are also available through the program for loan to community languages schools on a short-term basis. Please contact your nearest program education officer to see what is available.
Design your own syllabus
If there is no syllabus available in your language, our program education officers can help you design a course.
We also regularly run workshops and other activities to help schools create quality teaching materials and share ideas. Contact our program education officers.
You might also consider using teaching materials provided by your country of origin's education department to supplement your materials.
