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.

Upcoming Website Changes

We have a shiny-new website under development. The change is going to make our website easier to navigate and more up-to-date with everything happening around us.

Please bear with us as we transition across to it in the near future.

ATESOL ACT is a member of the Australian Council of TESOL Associations (ACTA), the national body representing EALD educators and researchers.
