English as an Additional Language or Dialect

Enrolment into English as an Additional Language or Dialect (EAL/D) as a Year 12 student cannot occur without eligibility approval. For a student to gain approval to enrol, the appropriate eligibility application must be completed and submitted to the Schools Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA), along with the required supporting documentation. EAL/D eligibility status is determined on a case-by-case basis.

Whilst eligibility for EAL/D is only required for students enrolling in Year 12 courses, schools are advised to collect documentation supporting EAL/D eligibility applications at the time of initial student enrolment in the school. Schools may submit students’ eligibility applications from the time that students are in Year 10 if they wish to determine the appropriate pathway for their students.
