Western Australia

Western Australian does not have a state wide policy in relation to indigenous languages.

 

Indigenous languages have recently been focused on in the WA Office of Multicultural Interests Languages Services Policy which seeks to ensure that translation services are provided by all government service providers.

Many Indigenous languages are taught in Western Australian schools and TAFE courses are being developed.

 

Curriculum Council

The Curriculum Council sets policy directions for kindergarten to year 12 schooling in Western Australia.

2008 is the first year students can enrol in a secondary subject Aboriginal Languages of Western Australia. The first WACE exam for Aboriginal Languages of Western Australia courses will be conducted in 2009.
