Summer Education and Activities Camp – SEAC Program
CRICOS: Not required
Envirotech Institute of Education’s “Summer Education and Activities Camp” (SEAC) Program is a special short term program delivered in partnerships with other educational institutions and organisations in various countries.
The SEAC program combines an English study program with social and recreational activities and survival skills in an English foreign country. It consists of 50% English language skills and 50% sport, recreational and tourism activities.
The program is designed to improve students’ skills in conversation, reading and writing of the English language and is aimed at young school and high school students by giving them an increased opportunity to properly prepare for higher education with improved interpersonal skills in English.
The academic aspect to this program will comprise subjects specifically constructed to meet the needs of the students.
The SEAC program places students into new environments, new cultures and foreign people in a supportive and embracing manner. Positive character traits are to be encouraged and developed to reduce any fears and worry for the students (and families) to leave their sheltered protected community and culture and to learn new and rewarding transnational education and social experiences.
Student and trainer‘s accommodation, shower and laundry facility and all other living requirements are provided including all special dietary requirements.
The academic program will not be limited to strict English studies but also consist of workshops outside the college were students will be taught survival skills in English in a foreign culture, understanding the difference in cultural backgrounds and how to interact by structuring questions, interpreting questions and responding appropriately. They will also be taught in to engage in the daily tasks of our English culture.
At the successful completion of our units of competency an Attainment Certificate will be issued by our International College to each student.
As educators we recognize the importance of the students maintaining the level of English proficiency that they will gain from this summer camp. Our college is open for communications on a train the trainer sessions for your academic staff. This could be a good opportunity to discuss training maters.
Whilst the primary academic purpose of the summer school is to improve English language skills we will bring a dream to come true to these students by engaging them in the experiences of another culture, and instructing them in learning how to navigate and to conduct themselves in a foreign environment around strangers.
We will encourage and support the students to feel comfortable in a foreign country and to learn how to adapt and behave in a different cultural background.
