About Us - Membership & Services


The AGTV promotes personal professional relationships between teachers across all sectors of education – primary and secondary, country and metropolitan, government and independent and Catholic, schools and universities – to promote learning and life opportunities for students through the study of German.

The association has been supporting teachers and students of German since 1979 and relies on the goodwill of people to offer their support through membership and service on the Committee and in Networks.

Team Deutsch

The Committee and Network Leaders provide voluntary leadership to coordinate the delivery of our services including:

  • facilitating professional learning through local AGTV Member Networks across Victoria
  • organising conferences and other professional development opportunities
  • coordinating the annual Bayerischer Jugendring reciprocal student exchange program
  • editing, publication and distribution of SZENE, the national journal for teachers of German
  • sharing information and ideas through local and national electronic media networks
  • funding a scholarship through the Society for Australian-German Student Exchange
  • application for and reporting on grants received from the Victorian government
  • administration of the association and associated insurance and legal obligations
  • developing curriculum and promotional resources
  • organising opportunities for students including competitions, forums, promotional events
  • liaising with other organisations and groups
  • representing teachers of German at various forums in Victoria and beyond

The Committee sometimes works with Goethe-Institut Australia in jointly funding and organising programs for teachers and students. The Committee facilitates professional development opportunities with the Kultur und Sprache section of the Austrian Bundesminesterium für Bildung und Frauen. See 'Partners and  Affiliations'.

The AGTV is a registered Student Exchange Organisation (SEO) through the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA).

The AGTV contracts the services of personnel to assist in the delivery of some of our services.
