Westall English Language Centre (WELC)
Westall English Language Centre is a Government funded facility which provides an intensive English program for newly arrived students. WELC caters for students who have arrived in Australia as refugees, migrants, or are full fee paying overseas students. Most students are eligible to participate in the 20-week English as an Additional Language (EAL) intensive program prior to transitioning to a mainstream educational setting.
The learning focus in the Language Centre is not only on learning English in preparation for the mainstream classroom, but also on personal development. Regular incursions and excursions are undertaken to support the learning and to expose newly arrived students to Australian life and culture.
