COVID-19 Announcement: Changes to course delivery. View our Coronavirus updates page.

Develop advanced English language skills and prepare yourself for future employment opportunities

The English as an Additional Language EAL (Employment/Professional) stream is part of our foundation courses and assists students to improve speaking, listening, reading, writing and living skills that can be applied in the Australian workplace.

The Certificate IV in EAL (Employment/Professional) includes career advice and intensive preparation for employment. This course can be studied on its own or in conjunction with relevant streams, such as health and community services and business. The professional stream caters for students who have qualifications that are recognised in Australia.

Full time, part time, evening and weekend options available.

Please note that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing requirements, to continue your learning journey, this program will be delivered remotely where possible.

Participants will be required to engage with learning material online and via video conferencing software rather than attend classes. Refer to our COVID-19 Online Service Standards for details of minimum technical requirements and support available. While it is expected that the course duration will remain unchanged, it may be necessary to extend the completion date if circumstances change. Chisholm will be monitoring the situation closely and inform of any changes if the duration of a course is extended.
