English for Coordinating and Management of Welfare,
Community and Childcare Services


There is a place for English courses which help to prepare overseas students for the specific professional tertiary course they intend to undertake in Australian colleges and universities.

The 12 week English for Coordinating and Management of Welfare, Community and Childcare Services (ECMWCCS) course at Oxford College of English has been designed for such overseas students who will be coming to Australia to engage in various courses of study for Welfare, Community and Childcare Professionals.

The course targets possible future employees of the public or private Welfare, Community and Childcare sectors. Students undertaking this course may be looking to enter an occupation straight after completion. While there will be an emphasis on skills relating to Welfare, Childcare and Community students, the course will also be useful for other occupational and industry areas, including any Coordinating and Management studies.

Entry Requirements:

Applicants require the equivalent to Australian high school completion at HSC level, with an academic IELTS score of 5.5 (with a minimum 5.0 in all tests).

Assessment Methods:

All students are assessed monthly. There are formal tests consisting of 5 parts: listening, speaking, reading, writing and grammar. A report will be issued to each student after the tests showing the student’s academic progress, marks and individual advice from the teacher.

Teaching Methods:

Our teachers combine modern language learning resources with up-to-date teaching techniques to ensure that students progress as quickly as possible. During the course, emphasis is placed upon the four macro skill areas of speaking, listening, reading, and writing as well as grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary development.

Teaching Materials:

Classroom materials are drawn from a wide variety of sources, including academic, secondary, business and general English texts, TV, radio, video, newspapers, journals and magazines. These materials are used in the classroom in a communicative and interactive way to ensure that maximum English language practice is obtained in all four macro skills.
