This course provides a general education curriculum framework for English as an additional language (EAL) language and literacy education primarily targeted to newly arrived migrants and refugees who need to develop language skills to participate in a range of community contexts. The Certificate also includes elective numeracy modules for those EAL learners who may also need to develop numeracy skills and not just become familiar with the English of mathematics.

Studying at CIT is different from the school or university systems. Unlike universities, which offer a more general and theory-based education, CIT focuses on teaching the skills and knowledge for jobs. CIT aims to provide quality programs and services, relevant curricula and modern facilities.

CIT programs cater for full or part-time students as well as people in either full-time or part-time employment. Some courses can be studied online or at an individual pace via one of the flexible learning centres. CIT classes are small, the average size being 20 students.

Programs are run only if there are enough students and resources. Each program has its own entry requirements. Selection criteria and/or selection processes apply to many high demand programs.

CIT offers traineeship programs which are advertised in local newspapers. Student loans and FEE-HELP loans are available for eligible programs where students meet the requirements.
