EAL/D Courses

With more than 300 languages spoken in our homes, more than 100 religions and more than 300 different ancestries, these figures from the 2016 Australian Census highlight our rich cultural diversity.

These PETAA courses recognise and address the contributions and educational needs of diverse EAL/D students in Australian schools by drawing upon principles and practices of EAL/D pedagogy. They support mainstream and specialist teachers in planning and implementing effective programs and identify specific teaching and learning practices to best support these students, including those who may be recent arrivals.
