Welcome to ATESOL ACT

ATESOL ACT is the Association of Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages in the Australian Capital Territory. Our members work within a range of contexts including school education, adult new arrivals programs, ELICOS, tertiary studies and research programs.

We aim to support all teachers and learners of English as an additional language within the ACT. We offer workshops and seminars which cater for all professionals working in the TESOL field and welcome mainstream teachers with EAL/D students.


The Australian Council of TESOL Associations (ACTA) is conducting a survey to seek confidential perspectives on the AMEP and SEE programs in the adult sector. The survey can be accessed here. It will be available till midnight Monday 28 December 2019 (AEDT).



The 2018 ATESOL ACT Committee has devised some upcoming professional learning events. See the events page.
