This event provides an opportunity for consultation on the Board of Studies NSW’s six proposals for a broader, more inclusive languages education as detailed in the Learning Through Languages Consultation Paper and Reference Paper and available from http://www.boardofstudies.nsw.edu.au/languagesreview.

Participants are requested to engage with the documents prior to attending the consultation meeting.

The meeting will run for approximately 90 minutes and will be conducted by Board officers – the Languages Inspector or Senior Curriculum Officer (Languages) and a Policy Officer. A Board Liaison Officer will also attend.

The meeting will commence with a 20 minute presentation by the Board officers. Attendees will then participate in small group discussion and provide feedback to be captured on the each of the six proposals (to mirror the online survey format). A short plenary session will then be conducted.

After attending the consultation, participants may complete the online survey if they wish that their specific views are accurately captured, http://www.boardofstudies.nsw.edu.au/survey
