NSW Aboriginal Languages in schools

Just came across this (thanks John Hobson!)

From NSW Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards (BOSTES)
Attention: Teachers of NSW Aboriginal Languages

BOSTES has commenced the development of a Stage 6 Aboriginal Languages Content Endorsed Course (CEC):

The course will contribute to the pattern of study requirements for the Higher School Certificate (HSC) and will appear on school leavers’ Record of School Achievement. It is intended to be flexible in its delivery and will be available as a 1 or 2 Unit course and a Preliminary and/or HSC course. Content Endorsed Courses are not externally examined and do not contribute to the calculation of a student’s Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR). Preliminary grades and HSC results will be on the basis of school assessment programs.

BOSTES will follow its established syllabus development process that includes consultation with teachers, community members and other key stakeholders. Details of dates for consultation will be provided through the BOSTES website and Bulletin news items.

Interested writers are invited to submit an Expression of Interest to the BOSTES Register of Curriculum writers by 5pm, Friday 13 February:

Please forward this invitation to members of your networks and to individuals that you feel would be interested in submitting an EOI for consideration to become a writer on this curriculum project.
For more information you can contact by email at christine.evans@bostes.nsw.edu.au or by phone on (02) 9367 8198.
