The COASIT Language Assistants Program places young university graduates from Italy to work as language assistants in Victorian schools.
Language assistants support qualified language teachers to provide authentic language and cultural experiences for students. Language assistants can use traditional and contemporary language and culture to engage students in face-to-face and online language learning. This includes, but is not limited to, team-teaching, providing small group or individual student language support, offering advice on linguistic and cultural matters and participating in school activities relating to their language and culture.
Language assistants can also be asked by COASIT to participate in resource development, student language immersion camps and teacher professional learning.
This mock exam is only available to teachers at schools teaching Italian at VCE level.
The mock exam will be ready by Monday 16 September 2019. Once it is available you will be emailed instructions on how to access the mock exam resources.
