Westall English Language Centre (WELC)
Westall English Language Centre is a Government funded facility to provide intensive English as an Additional Language preparation for all 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 intensive program prior to transitioning to a mainstream educational setting.
Although the focus is on survival English and language preparation for the mainstream classroom, additional activities and learning in the areas of personal development are organised. Regular incursions and excursions are also undertaken exposing newly arrived students to Australian life and culture.
