ELL Programmes

Vision Education has wide experience working with ELL across a wide range of schools and age groups. This includes reading, writing and oral language acquisition and instruction and the use of assessment information to inform instructional content and practice. Vision facilitators effectively support teachers to make links to ELL strategies and strengthen understanding of ELL learners and effective teaching resources.


The ELLP matrices are to be used to support the MOE ESOL funding application process in 2015 and Vision for Education provides PLD on using ELLP as a teaching and learning resource to address the language learning needs of ELLs. 


Where ELL support programmes are in operation Vision for Education is also able to aid schools to review, implement and reflect on their organization, content, teaching tools and assessment.

Skillful and Strategic Professional Learning

“Our Vision facilitator (Justine) built positive relationships with everyone she worked alongside and skillfully aligned her sessions with what we needed to develop in our practice based on our strategic aims.  Her professional development with staff has grown teacher knowledge, improved practice and accelerated progress for our learners.”

Knowledgeable and Authentic Professional Development

Benneydale School has been working with Leitia for 2 years in a wide range of capacities. Leitia has run a number of Teacher Only Days focusing on effective literacy practice in the classroom and she has modelled and supported best practice related to differentiated learning programs that support accelerated learning. Leitia has worked alongside teachers in the classroom providing feedback and support on teacher effectiveness. She has supported planning meetings with teachers and worked with them to refine their programs through using a coaching model. Evidence of teacher growth due to these coaching sessions can be seen in class practice. We have found Leitia to be very knowledgeable, quick to understand our needs and work with us to create our own PLD journey. I would recommend Leitia as a facilitator for any school wanting to provide authentic opportunities for staff to challenge their thinking and work towards enhancing their practice for the benefit of all learners.
