Accelerated English Language Learning (ACCELL) is a Ministry of Education programme designed for students from years 7-13 at the beginning stages of the English Language Learning Progressions (Foundation to Stage One). 

The programme is aimed at schools who do not have access to qualified ESOL teachers and do not have experience in working with English Language Learners at this early level. ACCELL is provided by CORE Education Ltd.

ACCELL is a short-term (up to 1 year) intensive intervention focusing on accelerated progress in English language learning.

Students are taught online by qualified and experienced ESOL teachers and given follow-up work designed to accelerate students' progress in learning English. The aim is to enable students to participate fully in their mainstream classes and make significant progress in catching up to their native-English speaking peers.
