This contract will provide professional development for paraprofessionals working with English language learners in English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) programmes and mainstream classes, so they become certified Language Learning Assistants.

We are looking for a provider who will provide a coherent plan for delivering professional development for clusters of paraprofessionals nationally over the contracted period.

This will include the development of appropriate resources, including an online presence, for the paraprofessionals, their learning centres and the facilitators.

This is an opportunity to further the careers of paraprofessionals and support the educational needs of a high needs group of learners.

Language Learning Assistant training is required to meet the professional development needs of paraprofessionals working with English language learners in early learning centres and schools throughout New Zealand.
The current programme, known as ELA (English Language Assistants), has approximately 120 paraprofessionals completing the training annually.

The proposal must be able to be developed and delivered by 19th December 2018.
