The Diploma in Indigenous Language Revitalization aims to support people who want to build on their Indigenous language proficiency, better understand the contexts in which Indigenous languages can be successfully taught, and gain some basic language teaching skills. This 31.5 unit program is the second laddered step in the Indigenous Language Revitalization programs through Indigenous Education. Like the Certification in Indigenous Language Proficiency above, this program is delivered in community-based contexts for specific indigenous language groups. The Diploma in Indigenous Language Revitalization then ladders into the Bachelor of Education in Indigenous Language Revitalization (see 10.0 Bachelor of Education in Indigenous Language Revitalization).
Program exceptions may be considered. Exceptions for the Certificate in Indigenous Language Proficiency and the Diploma in Indigenous Language Revitalization must be approved by the Chair of Indigenous Education, and exceptions for the Certificate in Aboriginal Language Revitalization courses must be approved by the Academic Advisor to the CALR.
