Consultation on Chinese and Japanese K–10 draft syllabuses

Consultation on Chinese and Japanese K–10 draft syllabuses is now open.

Consultation opportunities include:

  • face-to-face meetings from 4–6pm in regional and metropolitan locations
  • an online survey
  • written submissions.

The draft syllabuses, online surveys and registration for consultation meetings are on the BOSTES website.

Participating in a draft syllabus consultation meeting will contribute to 2 hours of QTC Registered PD (addressing 6.2.2 and 7.4.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers) towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.

Consultation ends Sunday 25 September. Feedback will be used to guide the development of the final syllabus documents.
