Intensive English Centre Curriculum

The Greenwood College Intensive English Centre offers a comprehensive curriculum aimed at giving students from non English speaking backgrounds an effective transition into mainstream Australian high schools.

The IEC curriculum is delivered through the key subject learning areas:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Society and Environment

 The subjects are taught by qualified high school teachers who also hold additional qualifications in teaching English as an Additional Language. Each unit is aligned to the newly formed National Australian Curriculum and delivered with an emphasis on English literacy and language acquisition.

Students at the Intensive English Centre also participate in a range of option subjects, such as Art, Dance, Computing Skills, and Physical Education, which help students to develop the concepts and language of a broad range of areas of the Australian Curriculum.

The Intensive English Centre also provides ongoing ESL support to students who have graduated from the IEC and entered the mainstream school.
