Enrolling in this course

To make sure that this course is the right one for you, we require all new learners to have an interview with one of our experienced teachers before the course. In the interview we will find out your English language level, tell you what you will be studying as well as organise your enrolment for you. Interview can be booked by calling our office on 9687 2072.


Plenty of pay parkings available within short waling distance of our Ross St office.

Learning strategies

This course will involve plenty of practical activites including workplace scenarios or case studies, filling up workplace forms, reading workplace signs and symbols etc. It has been designed for those who have very basic level of reading and writing skills and wish to take it to the next level. This is an ongoing practice, therefore it is imperative that you continue to attend more sessions in the upcoming courses.

What are assessments?

As you progress through your course you will be given small tasks you need to complete by practising your new English skills. This helps the teacher see what you have learnt. These are called assessments. If you successfully complete your assessments for each module you will receive a Statement of Attainment for that module. Your assessment could be:

  • Written question and answers
  • A reading task
  • A collection of your work

Am I eligibile to enrol into this course?
