About our Curriculum/ Course Documentation

ELICOS COURSE DOCUMENTATION ALIGNED TO C1 REQUIREMENTS

Our ELICOS Course documentation has been developed to assist organisations in their ELICOS teaching delivery. Our ELICOS course documentation is designed to specifically meet the requirements of C1 under the ELICOS Standards.

Also, the documents are produced in a format that allows you to review, copy and paste the required sections into the registration form, so you can complete the CRICOS application (for ELICOS) easily for each course. They are designed to save time and money as it would cost individual RTOs a lot of time to produce and compile the course outlines, timetables and relevant resources for each level.

As required under the ELICOS Standards, you would obviously need to meet the relevant provider standards and have qualified ELICOS staff to manage your curriculum and teaching delivery. We believe that our ready-to-use ELICOS course documentation would save you lots of time and money and give your ELICOS Director of Studies a great head start in delivering an outstanding program to your students.

Course Structure

The courses are designed to assist teachers in delivering lessons easily by following a structured lesson plan for 20 hours per week X 10 weeks. We have planned the courses using a core textbook which covers approximately 60% of the weekly lesson duration. The remaining 40% is based on a range of external texts and authentic materials to provide a comprehensive language learning experience for students.

The courses have been designed by highly qualified and experienced ELICOS teachers who have post-graduate qualifications and diverse teaching experience. While we have taken care to develop comprehensive course plans, please note that the materials have not been endorsed by NEAS or any regulatory authority. We have offered the materials to other RTOs who have successfully lodged their applications using our materials. We do take full responsibility for any course documentation provided by us, and we undertake to rectify any gaps identified at the initial addition to scope audit that relates directly to our materials (subject to the application being lodged within 3 months from the date of purchase).

The materials comprise a detailed timetable with hourly session plans that your ELICOS teachers can follow week-by week for a 10 week course. In addition, we provide brief lesson plans where external materials may have been used. We also provide a free (at no cost) sample photocopy of recommended materials compiled by us from external sources, referred to in the weekly course outlines, to make it easy for you to reproduce as permitted under your own Copyright Agency licence as an RTO. Please note that we cannot guarantee high quality photocopies as these are provided as supplementary samples only. Also, please note that the external resources are provided for free to you as recommended resources, and our quoted price is only for the materials written by us.

Please note that the materials do not include any entry tests, which you may wish to develop in-house. We can provide a sample free of charge for you to modify and use as required.

Licence to Use

We offer the above materials under a licence to use, modify and reproduce at your own RTO for the purposes of registering and delivering the courses at your own RTO. The licence fee (i,e the purchase price) is a one-off payment for unlimited duration. The licence does not permit you to sell, share or make available to any external parties in any format and we retain the full IP rights of the materials produced by us.

Process for Purchasing our Materials

  1. Please review the samples provided.
  2. Click on the relevant ‘Buy Now’ button to make your required purchases. Please make your payment through the payment gateway.
  3. Once we receive your order, we will email you a ‘Licence Agreement’ that your Principal Executive Officer (PEO) will need to sign and return to us. We cannot process your order without receiving a signed licence agreement.
  4. After we have received your payment and signed licence agreement, we will email you a link to download all your purchased materials. If you have opted for our services, we will contact you to arrange a time to discuss your project further and get it going expeditiously.
