The Teaching English Language Learners (TELL) program provides NSW primary and high schools with a comprehensive program of professional learning to support teachers of EAL/D learners across the range of school subject areas. It reflects current EAL/D pedagogy research and NSW priorities in literacy, numeracy, assessment and Quality Teaching.

While EAL/D specialist teachers work with targeted EAL/D learners to provide English language support across subject areas, they are not able to work across every class in the school. English language is best taught within the context of the subject area and class teachers share this responsibility with the EAL/D teacher. There is an on-going need for a professional learning program which provides mainstream teachers with the skills and understandings to effectively support EAL/D learners.


We are working on the migration of all data to the MyPL platform so that you can complete on the MyPL site without loss of completed modules. To do this we needed to shut Moodle on the 10 Dec, harvest the data to upload to MyPL. This process in nearly completed. You will be able to access the course with all your details of completed modules on MyPL from Tuesday 21 December.

Apologies for the inconvenience. This was the best process to enable all your details to remain with the course and allow you to complete outstanding modules at your leisure.
