Nationally or Interstate Assessed Languages (NIAL)
- 2021 applications closed: Applications to study a nationally or interstate assessed language course in 2021 closed on 1 April. The external assessment timetable and exam instructions will be confirmed in Term 3.
Year 11 and 12 students can apply to study nationally or interstate assessed language courses, as well as the TASC language courses being provided by Tasmanian schools. [The nationally assessed courses were previously known as the Collaborative Curriculum and Assessment Framework for Languages (CCAFL).]
The nationally or interstate assessed languages (NIAL) are Level 3 courses and are best suited to learners who already have strong skills in speaking a language (either as a background speaker or having extensively studied the language as a second language).
