About Winnipeg School Division: Adult EAL Program & Newcomer Services
Winnipeg School Division Adult EAL Program
The Winnipeg School Division Adult EAL Program is a part of Winnipeg School Division's Adult Education program. Located in downtown Winnipeg, the WSD Adult EAL Program serves a large newcomer population in the heart of Winnipeg. The program has been a vital part of the WSD for nearly 40 years serving newcomers who are just beginning their language acquisition journey.
Winnipeg School Division Newcomer Services
Winnipeg School Division not only recognizes the challenges our newcomer students and families may experience in attending school in a new country, but also the challenges our staff may experience in meeting the needs of our newcomer population. Over the past 30 years, our division has provided additional supports to assist students with integration and families with settlement.
Our Newcomer Service team consists of a Newcomer Service Coordinator, Intercultural Support Workers, and an EAL Consultant who proactively and collaboratively foster partnerships with government and community stakeholders, settlement sector organizations and schools to ensure student academic success.
