Options for teaching languages

All Victorian schools are engaged in expanding the teaching of languages so that all students will study languages between Foundation and Year 10.

La Trobe's Department of Education is keen to support these initiatives. People taking a primary teacher program have the option to ADD study of languages teaching (if they have the appropriate proficiency in the language) so that they qualify as both a generalist primary teacher and a teacher of languages. People taking a secondary teacher program who have appropriate proficiency in the language (postgraduate) or plan to develop it during their undergraduate study include languages teaching as one of their methods. You can find out about the policy and initiatives to support this from the Department of Education and Training website.
