AEI’s EXCEL Workshops are run each term over a weekend, for Year 7-10 students. Four workshop are run concurrently (two workshops for Year 7-8 students and two workshops for Year 9-10 students). There are no more than 15 students in each workshop, as we prioritise individualized feedback. AEI workshops are run at a local Brisbane school.

On November 5-6, AEI will be running writing workshops for middle-school students, to help them improve their creative, persuasive and analytical writing skills. These weekend workshops are perfect for students, who are keen to improve their results in English.

All workshop presenters are registered teachers with the Queensland College of Teachers (QCT). They have been selected to run an EXCEL Workshop, due to their exceptional abilities as English teachers and their ability to make learning exciting for their students.

Cost for the two day EXCEL Program is $270 for AEI Members and $300 for non-members.
