APTA thanks  its members and their member associations for their comments and feedback to help create its response to the Australian Government’s White Paper, Australia in the Asian Century. APTA response to the White Paper on Australia In The Asian Century

APTA recommended the following:

  1.  A sustained commitment and support to ensure the place of Asia literacy including language learning.
  2. Funding support for inter-country dialogue where educational partnerships are developed between schools, systems, sectors and professional teaching associations in Australia and Asia.
  3. Mapping and planning of professional association activities/resources already available and identifying gaps in the provision of support for the Australian Curriculum (and the mapping to the “Asia and Australia’s engagement with Asia” as a cross-curriculum priority).
  4. The development of a sustained languages policy which recognises and supports all languages.
