Secondary English an Additional Language/Dialect (EALD) Support Program
At Belmont City College we recognise that a significant proportion of our students are multi-lingual. Almost 30% of students at Belmont City College speak languages other than English at home. While this provides our students with a broad and inclusive world view, language difficulties can sometimes prevent learners from accessing mainstream curriculum to the depth that is required at secondary level. To address this need in our student population, classes for students with languages and backgrounds other than English have been created to allow them to receive specialist English as an Additional Language/Dialect (EALD) tuition in the context of the mainstream curriculum.
