Leading Asia capability

What are the enablers of Asia capability?

The Asia Literacy and the Australian Teaching Workforce report identifies five enablers that support teachers to develop Asia capability and to implement high quality teaching and learning programmes focused on Asia:

  • experience Asia first hand from work, study, travel, or family connections
  • access substantial, ongoing tertiary study and/or professional learning
  • be involved in school-to-school connections to the countries of Asia
  • gain support from school and school system
  • school teaches an Asian language. 


  • Which of these enabling factors have supported you to develop Asia literacy?
  • What actions can you take to further build Asia capabilities?
