The New Zealand Certificate in English Language (NZCEL) is a qualification approved by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA).
You can study the NZCEL at different levels (Foundation Level and Levels 1-5). Certificates at each level have 60 credits.
More information about the NZCEL qualification is available on the NZQA website.
Participate in short spoken discourse of immediate personal relevance for social and transactional purposes in predictable everyday situations. Understand specific predictable information in simple everyday written texts.
Since 2018, we have taught NCEL Level 1 and 2 at 5 of our language centres around Aotearoa New Zealand.
This year we have temporarily paused teaching NZCEL so we can review and update the course. We are currently talking to teachers and current and former students about this, and we are reviewing the course content and materials.
We plan to offer NZCEL Level 1 in Term 3 2024.
If you are interested in studying NZCEL we’d love to hear from you. We welcome feedback from teachers, employers, stakeholders and past and future learners on anything relating to the content or delivery of NZCEL . Email: email@example.com
You can study for an NZCEL with another provider. A list of organisations that offer NZCEL is available on the NZQA website.
