LEVEL 3: The English Language Framework (ELF)
The English Language Framework (ELF) is a course aimed at helping you to improve your language skills. The qualification is comprised of five levels and you can move through the levels according to your needs and abilities:
The entry requirements for the ELF qualification differ, depending upon the level you wish to begin studying. You can demonstrate your English language level through the free NCC Education English Placement Test, which is administered by our Accredited Partner Centres. If you hold an existing English Language qualification please contact your Accredited Partner centre to see if you can gain direct entry onto the relevant level of the qualification.
Reading, writing, speaking and listening skills are covered in each level, along with a focus on vocabulary acquisition and grammar. You can expect classes to be very active and include activities such as role-plays, presentations, summaries, discussions and group work, along with appropriate private study time. The qualification is structured to increase your confidence, linguistic accuracy and competence.
Assessment for all levels is offered four times per year (January, April, June and September).

At level 5, you can also elect to submit a valid IELTS score for certification instead of taking the NCC Education examination. This might be particularly helpful if you are planning to study overseas after the qualification.
All students passing the examinations for each level will be awarded with an NCC Education certificate. A final mark of at least 40% is required to pass each Level.
