Indonesian language teacher training scholarships

Several Language Teacher Training Scholarships are available for Indonesian language teachers who are currently employed in Victorian Government mainstream schools to undertake a Languages Methodology course.

Applicants must have a major in the language or a Statement of Equivalence as well as a Victorian Institute of Teaching registration. Teachers without a language major can obtain a Statement of Equivalence from a Victorian university to verify that the knowledge and competence in the language meet the standard of a major study in the language.

For more information and to apply, contact the Languages Unit at languages.query@edumail.vic.gov.au.
