Congratulations to ILSC Brisbane!

ILSC Brisbane, one of five ILSC Education Group campuses in Australia, is situated in a refurbished heritage building in the centre of Brisbane, alongside Greystone College, ILSC’s VET School. The centre offers a variety of courses, including General English, English for Academic Purposes, IELTS, and Cambridge Mastery. In addition to core skills, students can choose from a wide range of electives such as English through Music, English through Film, Cafe Work Skills, English for Business, and Presentation Skills.

The review found that teachers felt there was sufficient “space” in the curriculum to design activities tailored to their students’ needs. Students appreciated that during the first week of their course, teachers gathered information about their aims and expectations to make necessary adjustments. Students also spoke highly of the teachers’ tips for using their language skills outside the classroom and the recommended materials, noting that their confidence in communication had grown significantly since starting at ILSC. They felt that the school met their expectations. A student noted, “We are more than just a number, teachers and staff show concern”.

Students praised the ease of accessing information and support through the school’s mix of QR codes and e-services, which seamlessly integrated with mobile devices. An Activity Coordinator ensures a vibrant calendar of local activities and internal events, including charity drives and special experiences for some electives, such as visits to a retirement village to share a concert and chat.

Ongoing Professional Development (PD) is a key part of the culture at ILSC Brisbane. Staff members accrue CPD points, and external PD opportunities include events and sessions offered by NEAS, EA, and QATESOL, along with knowledge sharing from colleagues in Canada and the USA.
