About ACTA

ACTA, the Australian Council of TESOL Associations, is the national coordinating body for all associations of Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) across Australia.

Our Objectives

  • to represent and support the interests of teachers of English to speakers of other languages and dialects and their students
  • to ensure access to appropriate English language instruction for speakers of other languages and dialects
  • to encourage implementation and delivery of quality professional programs at all levels
  • to promote study, research and development of TESOL at local, regional, national and international levels.

Membership of ACTA comes automatically through membership of one of its constituent associations. 

ACTA is made up of councillors from each state and territory association (see below). To see a list of ACTA's councillors (and a point of contact for each one) please go to the Contact us page.
