About Us

VILTA is an incorporated professional subject association run by an elected volunteer committee. VILTA began in 1970 in response to the need for a support group for the growing number of Indonesian teachers in Victoria.

VILTA provides:

  • A network for Indonesian teachers - primary, secondary and tertiary.
  • Quality teaching and learning of the Indonesian language and culture in Victoria.
  • Professional Development opportunities for its members.
  • The quarterly electronic newsletter 'Suara VILTA'.
  • A cultural context to Indonesian studies by liaising with the Indonesian community.
