Program Title10190NAT Learning an Endangered Aboriginal Languages Certificate III
Industry SectorIndigenous Programs
DescriptionCertificate III in Learning an Endangered Aboriginal Language will focus on Kaurna Language. The land has multi-layers of literacy and therefore to Aboriginal people, language is much more than just words. It is a direct link to land and country. It holds traditional songs and stories. It is about spirituality and deep meaning, and it reflects unique cultural concepts and ways of looking at the world. Cultural learning is a major part of the course. Instruction is delivered through intensive workshops and also in community owned and driven environments. Students should be prepared to do at least 20 hours per week of unstructured practice of the language.
PathwaysStudents can progress to Certificate IV in Teaching an Endangered Aboriginal Language. The Cert III completed can count towards an ATAR which could lead to University entry to courses such as Teaching.
Program Length
One year is a minimum – if students attend every session and keep up with the course work, it is achievable; however, absence will mean students may not complete in one year.
