Immigration Levy funding provides for one-to-one English language tuition, social English classes, English for migrants’ programmes and English for speakers of other languages (ESOL) literacy classes.

The Immigration Levy is paid by migrants with low English language skills as part of their visa requirements. The levy supports these migrants to gain sufficient English language skills to work, live, and carry out further study in New Zealand.  

One private training establishment (PTE)English Language Partners (formerly ESOL Home Tutors), currently receives this funding.
