The South Australian Government’s ‘Languages in Schools’ initiative contains a suite of measures to reinvigorate the study of languages in schools.

As part of this initiative in 2022, the Minister for Education is offering a special scholarship for an early career teacher of languages in either a catholic, independent or public school. The scholarship will enable the awardee to engage in a language immersion experience within Australia or overseas. 
This scholarship is a wonderful opportunity for a language teacher in their first five years of teaching to improve their language skills, proficiency, and intercultural understanding. It is only available for languages that have a curriculum or framework in the Australian Curriculum.

Before proceeding with this application, please ensure you have:

  • Read the ‘Information for Applicants’ for the Early Career Scholarship 2021
