Prestigious Placement - English(ELICOS) + K-12 Schools + University
The journey for an international student from their home country to Australia is often complicated and stressful. Our role is to decrease stress for both the family and the education provider. We manage the entire process from offshore study preparation to ELICOS provider to best school options and beyond. Both the student and the family, as well as the education provider, can trust in a seamless academic process that puts the student's academic and wellbeing needs first. We individually design and manage the learning journey for each international student on behalf of our global education partners. Our primary goal is international student success. We create students who are confident and capable in a new education system, in a new country.
Learning Innovation Centre - 1-1 Academic & Wellbeing Support
We believe that an international student can only truly succeed at learning in a new country with a scaffolded 1-1 learning structure that caters for both their academic and wellbeing needs. As international student specialists, with a wide range of highly qualified and experienced learning mentors, we provide academic literacy skills and core subject knowledge( K-12 English, Science, Mathematics) for our students. We believe in an innovative teaching and learning approach that provides individualised learning plans with the wellbeing of each student at the focus. We are proud of the fact that our students enjoy their learning, authentically connect with their carefully assigned learning mentor, and ultimately feel valued, hence building their confidence and self-esteem in a new country. The student- parent - educator connection is at the forefront of our program, with on-demand feedback crucial to our outstanding student success stories.
