Our Training

TOID 6389

Our courses are for people who are keen to improve their reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. ANH offers people the chance to learn and practice their English skills in a comfortable, informal and relaxed atmosphere at a low cost. Students will have the opportunity to improve their reading and writing skills for day to day life, for employment or for further study. New students can enter the class at any time (if there is a place available). As a small, friendly and accessible neighbourhood house we are well placed to support your individual learning needs and to assist you in achieving the best possible learning outcomes. The administration and teaching staff will make every effort to provide you with relevant information about course selection and ongoing training options. Students who are experiencing difficulties in any class or program or need any referral information can speak to their teacher or to any other staff member who will make every effort to resolve this.  

Classes run all year round on a school term basis and if you would like to enrol in English as an additional language class you will need to make an appointment for an assessment.  All new students need to make an appointment and be interviewed to ensure they are placed in a suitable class. In 2020 accredited courses offered are 22484VIC Certificate l in EAL Framework (Access) and 22485VIC Certificate ll in EAL Framework (Access). At the interview students will be informed of the course outline and units to be studied and be provided with a relevant Training Guide for either Certificate that is to be undertaken. Students will also be informed of their obligations and legal rights whilst undertaking their training. Courses are government subsidised depending on eligibility. Individuals must meet Victorian Training Guarantee eligibility requirements.  An accredited certificate is issued after successful completion of a certificate level. Students who successfully complete one or more units of competency within a qualification will receive a Statement of Attainment. These qualifications are recognised nationally.
