Italian Language Teachers Association (ILTA) is a professional association that provides information and services to teachers of Italian in NSW.
What We Do
Italian Language Teachers Association aims to identify and serve the needs of teachers of Italian. We promote the diffusion of Italian language and culture in schools and the wider community. We provide our members with opportunities for professional development.
We actively represent teachers of Italian in all relevant forums. We raise awareness of issues and information pertinent to the Italian language and culture.
We also keep members informed of curriculum requirements and changes. ILTA raises awareness of the variety and current trends of language teaching methodology.
We liaise with professional and social organisations in the area of Education and the Italian community. We develop links between teachers of Italian K-12. We foster collegiality in all sectors of Education in NSW.
Get To Know Our President
Angela Porro has been an experienced Italian teacher for many years. She began her career in south west Sydney as a teacher in charge of department. Her school at the time had no classes; yet after six months, languages began to flourish again and classes were formed.
Angela currently teaches in the Sutherland Shire, where she is also a teacher of English and Catholic Studies. She has a passion for languages and supporting teachers. Angela has been the president of ILTA since 2014.
How We Achieve
"It is impossible for a man to learn what he thinks he already knows."
ILTA organises forums, inservices, conferences and workshops for teachers of Italian. We also organise language and cultural activities for students of Italian.
We develop teaching materials that are shared with our members. We disseminate information on Italian language and culture while also sharing ideas and resources. We inform our members of Board of Studies documents, requirements and changes.
