English Language Partners New Zealand

English Language Partners New Zealand (ELP) specialises in teaching people who do not have English as their first language. We can work with employers in several ways:

  • you refer learners directly to our English for Employees programme – ideal for employers with only one or two staff who need support.
  • we develop and teach a group programme that meets your specific workplace English language/literacy needs (e.g. reading, writing, listening, speaking).  

ELP is a registered PTE with 23 centres across the country: Whangarei, Auckland, Tauranga, Hamilton, Rotorua, Taupo, Napier, New Plymouth, Wanganui, Palmerston North, Levin, Porirua, Hutt, Wellington, Blenheim, Nelson, Christchurch, Timaru, Dunedin and Invercargill.


Find contact details for your nearest centre at www.englishlanguage.org.nz. In 2019 ELP has just over 500 TEC funded fees-free places for learners with residence. If your staff are work visa holders, and therefore not eligible for fees-free TEC places, please call us to discuss costs.
