Porirua learners succeed in NZ Certificate in English Language


Congratulations and well done to all our NZCEL learners

All our Porirua students in Level 1 and Level 2 NZCEL courses have achieved their NZQA certificate in module one this year. Most from Level 1 are now doing Level 2, while one person has gone onto fulltime employment.

All students who completed Level 2 have moved on to Whitireia for further study. Some will study English language, and some go straight into career-based courses. The classes are full-time and require a fair amount of determination as there is also a 14-hour per week independent learning component.

Aside from the certificate, the fact that classes are for 20 hours per week means we witness progress in the learners beyond their assessments: purely through seeing their interactions with the team and with each other. Seeing such strong cross-cultural friendships and such confidence in the learners is a real highlight of these classes. It provides enormous confidence for us in the ability of these learners to settle successfully into Kiwi life, study and work.
