Community Language Allowance Scheme (CLAS) - Public Service Association

Community Language Allowance Scheme (CLAS)

To all Departmental Committee and Vocational Group Delegates

Dear delegates,

The PSA has recently been made aware that about 2 years ago the government stopped accepting new applications for the Community Language Allowance Scheme. The Minister has been reviewing the scheme for over a year now.

The Association would like to know if this is an issue relevant to your workplace. Please email if it is.
