The NSW Department of Education is conducting state-wide consultation for DoE teachers on these draft syllabuses from 13-29 June 2017. This consultation period is the only opportunity for teachers to be part of the department’s feedback to NESA. (Note: Other education sectors run their own consultation).
As a DoE teacher, if you'd like to be part of our consultation, here's what you need to do:
1. Download the relevant draft language-specific K-10 syllabus from the NESA website.
2. Carefully read through the draft syllabus which is relevant to you. If you have any areas of concern or strength within any of the draft languages syllabuses, please submit via email to Janelle Byrne by Thursday 29 June 2017.
3. Attend the Adobe Connect session on Wednesday 28 June (3:30-4:30pm) by logging into https://connect.schools.nsw.edu.au/secondarylanguages.
If you haven't participated in an Adobe Connect session before, please download the 'how-to' guide below and follow the instructions. It's easy!
4. Complete the NESA online survey by 7 August 2017.
Teachers are encouraged to participate in the NESA-led consultation opportunities in addition to departmental consultation. Full details including the NESA consultation meetings are available on the NESA website.
