English Language Learner Support

While KCTC serves as an excellent resource for career exploration and training for all Kent County students, the hands-on learning in our courses can especially benefit English Language Learners (ELLs) in their language and academic development.  The KCTC Language Support Team works with students who have been identified by their sending schools as ELLs, according to the Michigan English Language Proficiency Assessment (ELPA). Our team:

  • Assists ELLs in their academic coursework; 
  • Works to ensure that ELLs’ developing English proficiency does not prevent access to services and materials offered at KCTC; and 
  • Supports ELLs in their needs for career exploration, continuing education and successful employment.

If you have specific questions about a student who is currently enrolled in our programs, please contact
