As the first step of the enrolment process, all prospective students are interviewed by an NMLL teacher. At this meeting, the individual student’s learning needs are discussed and assessed, ensuring placement in an appropriate class.
Once a suitable course and time has been found, the student is assisted through the enrolment procedure.
Before commencing at NMLL, all students must pay their fees and agree to the Terms and Conditions of Enrolment. These include:
- Agreement to enroll in a specified course and acceptance of the associated fees
- Agreement to act in accordance with the Code of Conduct
- Acknowledgement of the NMLL Fees and Refunds Policy
- Acknowledgement of receipt of the NMLL Student Handbook
At NMLL, students are assessed in accordance with the training guidelines set by the Victorian ESL Framework and the Certificates in Spoken and Written English (for AMEP students).
A range of methods are used to assess students, including interviews, participation in group discussions and activities, reading and writing and role play. Certificates and Statements of Attainment are issued in accordance with units of competency attained.
Recognition of Prior Learning
Where a student has a certificate or a statement of attainment from another Registered Training Organisation (RTO), NMLL practices mutual recognition.
If a student has experience or other formal training related to their course, they may also consider applying for RPL and may be given credit for selected modules.
