Community Languages School Grants - Establishment Grant

Grant Closes: 30th of April 2024 Value: Up to $2,500 Run By: NSW Government Department of Education Further Information: https://education.nsw.gov.au/public-schools/community-languages-schools/community-languages-school-grants/establishment-grant

This one-off establishment grant helps organisations that are setting up language classes for the first time by helping them in their first year.

You may receive an establishment grant if your community language school:

  • is located more than two kilometres away from any other community language school which teaches the same language
  • has been operating for at least two months using a teaching program
  • normally has a minimum of 20 school-aged students enrolled. (Schools outside a metropolitan area with less than 20 students may be eligible for funding in some circumstances.)
  • is open to school students from Kindergarten to Year 12, regardless of their language background
  • holds classes outside school hours for at least 35 weeks of the year
  • provides a minimum of two hours per week face-to-face language teaching based on a sound educational program.

If your community is small or isolated and cannot meet teacher or syllabus requirements immediately, you may be granted an exemption for up to 12 months. During this time your school can work with a program education officer to try to meet these requirements.

The grant can be used for:

  • teaching materials
  • stationery, photocopying
  • payments to teachers
  • buying educational equipment
  • expenses associated with the administration of the schools.
