The development of a concurrent English - IT Programme for International Students

Abstract

In 2001, the IT Department and the Centre for English and Other Languages at the Waikato Institute of Technology (CEOL) decided to merge two existing programmes, the Certificate in Advanced English, (CAE) and the Certificate in Computing and Information Technology, (CCIT) and run them together, so that Non English Speaking Background (NESB) students could study two six month certificate level programmes concurrently, rather than consecutively. There would be a separate NESB occurrence of the CCIT programme, and the combined one-year full time programme would be designed as a bridging course into mainstream study at Bachelor of Information Technology (BIT) level. It was hoped that this development would provide new horizons for NESB students in the area of computing education.
