The Online Delivery of Australian English Language Teaching must also be a Gold Standard Experience for Students
With the impact of COVID-19 still reverberating through our society and economy, the English Language Teaching community in Australia is striving to continue to be able to deliver high standards of learning in a fast-changing environment.
It’s already a huge challenge for students to leave their homes and families behind and come to a country where they do not speak the language, to acquire an education, and often take steps to improve their English skills after hours, commonly at their own expense.
After the success of the NEAS Health Check for Quality Area H – Online Delivery, some members have extended their continuous improvement activities in this area by applying to have their remote delivery models Quality Assured by NEAS.
The following centres are the first to achieve NEAS Quality Endorsement for Online Delivery, and we would like to congratulate them for this achievement.
As at 1 July 2020, another three quality centres have reached the milestone of 25 years of continuous quality endorsement with NEAS! Each has demonstrated their commitment to quality through 25 years of membership with NEAS and now join the exclusive group awarded the ’25 Years Quality Commitment’ logo. We look forward to celebrating their achievement at the 2021 NEAS Management Conference, confirmed now for 6-7 May 2021, Doltone House Sydney.
NEAS thanks all the participants and sponsors transferring to the new date. Our conference will continue to focus on the theme of Transformative Journeys in Education. Speakers and schedule will be announced in the near future.
As we branch further out to the online space and prepare for a return to the ‘new normal’ face to face teaching environment we must reach out to each other for support and ideas sharing. Preparing yourself for the future is vital if you want to stay relevant and keep your stakeholders engaged.
NEAS’ Professional Development supports the ELT community through advancing best practices to all areas of ELT delivery and support. Our PD supports all individuals working with and alongside ELT institutions to help them meet their quality goals as well as expand their PD capacity.
Our 2020 Professional Development suite continues to evolve in order to provide the support needed by the ELT community.
NEAS Australia is continuing to support our members and the ELT Community during COVID19 with a clear message and purpose: we have a plan, and we will get through this together. Thank you to our members, partners and stakeholders who have in turn supported NEAS.
NEAS will celebrate this year 30 years of quality assurance and accreditation in Australia and we’re inviting you to celebrate with us at the 2020 NEAS Management Conference. How long has your centre been with NEAS? Share your NEAS story with us at this year’s conference. Email us!
