We offer many programs and services to ensure that people from a language background other than English have access to vocational education and training. Programs include English for Specific Purposes (ESP) courses that assist people to gain vocational skills so that they can get a job or go on to further study. Support is also provided to students in mainstream courses who need help with their English. Contact a Multicultural Education Coordinator at your local college.
See Career Advice and Counselling if you can’t keep up with the workload, speak to your teacher, head teacher or counsellor.
