English Language Learning (ELL)

English Language Learning Licensure Program (K-12) Leading to Licensure in English as a New Language

The English Language Learning (ELL) Graduate Licensure Program provides Indiana teachers who hold an elementary or secondary instructional license issued by the State of Indiana with the professional preparation to assist English Language Learners in developing their English language and academic skills in K through grade 12.

Teaching English Language Learners K-12 Certificate Program

The Teaching English Language Learners K-12 Certificate (TELL) provides students who are currently enrolled in a doctoral or master’s program at Purdue University with a background in working with English Language Learners K-12. The certificate does not constitute a teaching license, but posts to the student’s transcript as a separate area of work.
