How to enrol
Those wishing to enrol are welcome to contact the Greenwood Intensive English Centre on (08) 9243 9300 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to book an appointment.
Students wishing to enrol must be of non-English speaking backgrounds and be holders of an eligible Australian VISA. Upon arrival at the IEC, applicants reading and writing, as well as their general speaking and listening skills will be assessed. This allows our centre to place students in classes which are appropriate to their level of English. The IEC will provide students and their guardians with general information about the Australian high school system and pathways into mainstream Australian schools.
Staff fluent in multiple languages are available to assist in the enrolment procedure in the following: Cantonese, Mandarin, Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese, Arabic, Kurdish, Farsi, Croatian, Bosnian, Serbian, Macedonian and Italian. We are also able to arrange on-call interpreter service if another language is required.
IEC staff are highly skilled and are selected via a competitive merit selection procedure. All teaching staff members have English as a Second Language qualifications, many with post graduate qualifications. Staff also have experience in various learning area disciplines. The IEC employs a combination of Primary and Secondary teachers in order to cater for the variety of needs of our student body.
Education Assistants are also employed at the IEC. They are fluent in many of the languages spoken by our student body and play an important role in helping students to bridge cultural and language barriers
