About Us

WATESOL is a not-for-profit incorporated association representing the interests of teachers and learners of EALD across Western Australia.

Our members teach at primary, secondary and/or tertiary institutions and come from the ELICOS sector, adult migrant colleges, Catholic Education, Independent schools, and Education Department of WA.

WATESOL has been serving the West Australian TESOL Community for over 30 years. Many members over numerous years have contributed to this. It has consistently hosted professional learning events for its members, providing sponsorships, awards, nominations for awards, networking opportunities, advocating and consulting on behalf of TESOL stakeholders, and hosted national conferences, as well as the 2016 ACTA-ACAL international conference.
