No matter what your current English proficiency level, we have a programme for you to improve your English language skills and take your career forward.
Outcome: NZCEL English Language Level 1
Premier Institute of Education offers the New Zealand Certificates in English Language (Level 1 to Level 5). The New Zealand Certificates in English Language (NZCEL) qualifications are nationally recognised qualifications intended for learners of English as an additional language, who have successfully completed NZQA approved programmes delivered in New Zealand or offshore.
This programme is intended for learners with a minimal command of English. The aim is to provide graduates with the skills to communicate with support, in basic, familiar, everyday situations in order to participate in an English language environment.
This programme is at a level comparable to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) high A1—low A2.
