In 1976 the first steps were taken to introduce Slovenian into the Australian school system. Aleksandra Ceferin (BA.MA.DipEd) made the first official approaches and by the end of the year  founded Slovenian Teachers’ Association of Victoria (STAV). Its aim was to garner  all teachers with Australian and/or Slovenian qualifications and provide a support group for the teaching of Slovenian language. Classes in the Saturday School of Modern Languages in three school centres in Melbourne started February 1977. 


The mission of the Institute for Slovenian Studies of Victoria is:
- Promotion, establishment and maintenance of Slovenian language and culture, principally through the medium of technology assisted learning, to benefit the descendants of Slovenian immigrants
- Development of the web node as a vehicle for the study of Slovenian language, culture and the arts
- Presentation of Slovenia and Slovenian culture to the broader English-speaking world community.
