Role of MELC

The Ministerial Advisory Committee: Multicultural Education and Languages (MELC) provides advice to the South Australian Minister for Education and Child Development on three interrelated areas of education: languages education, multicultural education and the internationalisation of education.

MELC works collaboratively with educational and community organisations towards ensuring that education for all students is enriched by the value of engagement with linguistic and cultural diversity and that children learn to operate with sophistication and ease with diverse people. The experience of doing is an integral part of the learning experience of young people in contemporary times.
