English skills programs

We offer a range of programs to help you improve and extend your English language skills in our vibrant Independent Learning Centre (ILC).

Our centre has a full-time coordinator who offers specialised support and free lunchtime skills classes.

Skills program


Improve your writing, reading, grammar and pronunciation skills in our free lunchtime skills classes. We run classes each week during lunchtime.

Classes are limited to 15 students and are free of charge.

They are generally held on a "first-come-first-served" basis using the sign-up sheets on the noticeboard. 

One-on-one study support


Our one-on-one study support is customised to focus on areas that you need to improve.

It can help you to better understand your course material.

These 30-minute sessions are available outside of class times and can be booked with the Independent Learning Centre Coordinator.

Online learning program

Our online learning program helps you control your own learning.

You can choose from a range of online learning materials including independent learning packages, links to useful ESL websites, videos and audio files.

We run weekly information sessions on how to use online programs in the Independent Learning Centre.
