Online ESOL support for students in schools

We have a new online ESOL programme available to intermediate and secondary schools that have students who are new learners of the English language.

This programme on the Virtual Learning Network is designed to accelerate English language learning to help students in years 7–13 catch up to their peers as quickly as possible. It may be particularly useful for schools who have not had ESOL students before or don’t have an established ESOL department or ESOL teachers.

The programme has been known as ELLINZ Online. It was piloted with great success and is now delivered by eTeachers employed by CORE Education.

Students and schools will be identified from the Ministry ESOL funding database, and the CORE team will invite them to join the programme. Schools that think they might be eligible for the programme are also welcome to contact the providers directly.

You can find out more about the programme and how it works at: ACCELL: Accelerated English language learning (external link) .
