Interpreting and Translating

From Term 1 2017, Victorian government and Catholic schools will use the new Victorian Curriculum F-10. Curriculum related information is currently being reviewed and may be subject to change.

For more information on the curriculum, see:
The Victorian Curriculum F–10 - VCAA

For parents and guardians who require an interpreter, goverment schools can access free Interpreting and translating services, within ​guidelines. This service ensures access to school information and better communication between parents and schools. 

​Schools with students and families from language backgrounds other than English need to ensure that information relating to school programs and student progress is made available to parents in their first language.

To facilitate this, the Department provides schools with access to qualified and accredited interpreters. This is in line with Victorian government policy to help Victorians from culturally and linguistically diverse communities deal with government departments and agencies. All schools have been provided with the guidelines and booking forms.
