Course details

Summary

This qualification is designed for people who are learning English as an additional language. There are 5 qualifications; each one leads to a National Certificate in English Language (NZCEL). Each qualification level builds on skills learnt in the previous one.

At levels, 3 and 4 the qualification is split into three separate strands, general, workplace and academic. If you want to go to university you must select the academic strand. In the academic strand you may also have the opportunity to prepare for exams like IELTS, and FCE.

Each qualification is divided up into four courses worth 15 credits each. You are required to complete 60 NZQA credits to complete each qualification. The 4 courses are reading, writing, listening and speaking. Each credit involves approximately 10 hours of study. Within some courses there are NZQA unit standards you can gain these as part of the qualification. Each qualification involves 20 weeks study and two weeks holiday. The total length is 22 weeks.
