Free SICLE professional development opportunity

Sydney Institute for Community Languages Education (SICLE) is offering a free, 60-contact-hour professional development program for teachers working in NSW Government-funded Community Languages Schools.

The program will help you to:

  • understand how children learn and develop languages and how to teach them

  • engage and interest students in maintaining and extending their language and cultural abilities

  • plan lessons and assess student learning

  • develop resources and teaching activities that work with a range of students.

The Foundation Program includes a visit to a mainstream school to observe teaching. This classroom learning is interactive and practical, giving you confidence and new ideas in working with young children, teenagers and adults. A NSW Working with Children Check is a mandatory requirement for this component of the program.

Assessment is practical and involves getting to know your students, creating teaching resources, developing behaviour management strategies and preparing classroom activities.

Start date: 16 July 2023

End date: 26 November 2023
