NSW Interpreter Scholarship Program
People who speak in-demand, new and emerging community languages can receive scholarships to become qualified practicing interpreters.
The NSW Interpreter Scholarship Program is a partnership with tertiary educational providers and universities. We target hard to service languages to ensure that our multicultural communities are connected and have access to information.
CLAS information and examination
The Community Language Allowance Scheme (CLAS) recognises the language skills of NSW Government employees who can provide on-the-spot language assistance in the workplace.
CLAS is an allowance paid to qualified NSW Government employees who have a basic level of competency in a language other than English and work in locations where their language can be used to assist customers.
Multicultural NSW has engaged NAATI to deliver language proficiency testing to establish eligibility for CLAS.
