Our Advocacy

Our Advocacy

Advocacy in TESOL is a central ACTA objective. Our ACTA Advocacy pages thus aim to play a pivotal role in outlining these issues and the various ways you can engage and deal with them.

Issues discussed here are both Federal and State matters.  Advocacy for the needs of EAL/D learners and teachers in the Federal arena is a matter of agreement across the State Associations, and usually (but not always) takes place through the ACTA Council.

State/territory advocacy issues will in some cases be addressed differently according to the relationships between the State or Territory TESOL associations and its State or Territory government and education systems.

ACTA presents the matters here for information sharing across State/Territory associations.  Members are encouraged to contact their State/Territory association for details of advocacy actions planned and underway in their particular State/Territory.
