This is a multi-level class for students from Year 9 to Year 13 who are using spoken English as a second language at a basic/elementary level (CEFR A1, A2). It is 4 hours a week.

Students will work collaboratively in all IEOC classes.

Students can gain up to 20 internally assessed unit standard credits for L1 English Language (EL).
