Perth-headquartered education provider Navitas has extended its business partnership with the Central Institute of Technology with a new agreement to provide English language courses for overseas students.

The English language intensive courses for overseas students will be taught at CIT’s Northbridge campus for one year initially, with the option of an extension.

Navitas executive general manager Sally Waite said the partnership with CIT was a win-win for the education sector in Western Australia. 

“At present, around 50 per cent of CIT’s ELICOS students continue their studies either with CIT or with other state training providers in WA, so we hope that we can bring Navitas’ scale and experience to the partnership and help to grow the international student market here in Perth,” Ms Waite said.

Navitas already provides adult migrant English program youth-focused classes for CIT, as well as skills for education and employment pre-training assesments and training.” 

CIE has been delivering ELICOS programs since the 1990s, delivering courses to between 160 and 250 students a week.

“The more the English language sector for international students grows here, the wider the benefits for all training providers in WA,” Ms Waite said. 

Classes are now underway.
