About our Intensive English Unit
Students enrolled in the SIEU are between 15 and 17.5 years of age at enrolment and have been assessed as requiring intensive English language instruction. The programs aim to teach English language skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening in a supportive atmosphere. It is important to us that students feel comfortable to practise their developing English skills.
The primary outcomes for students in the SIEU are to:
- develop reading, writing, speaking and listening skills in English, to enable students to meet the demands of mainstream senior secondary education and/or access further education and training in Australia
- learn the processes and study requirements of Australian schools.
Students are recommended to exit the SIEU when they demonstrate the English skills necessary to continue and be successful in their mainstream school studies and/or further education and training.
