Registration now open: Australia’s English Language Teaching (ELT) Barometer
Monday, September 11 2017
ACEPT is pleased to promote the opportunity for English Language Colleges to participate in the Australia’s English Language Teaching (ELT) Barometer.
The 2017-18 Australian ELT Barometer has the endorsement of the Minister for Education and Training as a funded project under the National Strategy for International Education and is recognised as providing insights into the student experience both on and off campus.
This survey is part of the Department of Education and Training's (DET) biennial international student satisfaction survey. The English Language Teaching (ELT) Barometer is a tailored international student barometer (ISB)/ survey for English Language colleges to measure student satisfaction across arrival, living, learning, and support, and is translated into 11 languages.
Participation in the ELT Barometer enables individual English language colleges to track the decision-making, perceptions, expectations and experiences of their international students, providing valuable input to strategy development across core aspects of the business, from recruitment to teaching to graduation.
The ELT Barometer also represents a low investment mechanism through which providers can collect student feedback and assess performance against key measures in the National ELICOS Standards, particularly those areas related to the ‘student voice’, including (but not limited to) teaching and assessment.
The survey instrument has been specifically developed to support English language providers to improve the student experience both within the classroom and outside the formal learning setting, and provides institutions with evidence-based research critical to informing and garnering support for policy review and development.
The ELT Barometer is managed by English Australia and is open to all Australian English Language colleges. The survey is independently administered by i-graduate with each participant receiving their own individual benchmark report.
As a project endorsed under the National Strategy participants receive a significant saving to undertake the ELT Barometer and pay only $1,400 (exc. GST) to participate. Registration closes Friday 22 September 2017.
Please contact English Australia to register for the survey.
