English Language Learners
Option courses from the ELL Learning Area provide essential English language support and NCEA EL standards from Level 1 to Level 3, English Achievement standards Level 1, and EAP UE literacy standards. The ELL courses are designed for all English language learners, who may include
students from homes where a language other than English is spoken
ESOL-funded students from migrant, refugee backgrounds (first 5 years in NZ education) or NZ-born backgrounds (funded for 3 years)
students transitioning from kurato English medium-learning environments
students from bilingual education settings
international fee paying students
The HOLA ELL will recommend the most appropriate course for individual students.
