Outpost

Noble Park English Language School also operates intensive outpost programs in primary schools which have high concentrations of newly arrived students who cannot access the English language school or centre.

Through the intensive outposting program, primary teachers from an ELS/ELC are assigned to a mainstream primary school or a cluster of schools. These teachers provide an intensive NAP for eligible newly arrived students for whom English is an additional language.

Students are grouped according to their stage of schooling and English language needs. They receive an intensive English language program for up to four days a week. The students remain enrolled in their host school and participate in its program when not in the intensive EAL class. Locations of programs are flexible and change according to settlement patterns.

In addition, English language schools may operate visiting outpost services to support primary students who are unable to travel to attend the ELS campus. The program is based on a visiting teacher model using qualified EAL teaching staff who are attached to ELS/ELCs.
