Quit works with adult ESL classes to provide information about the health effects of smoking to migrants and refugees who are learning English or participating in adult language and literacy courses or vocational training.
The following topics can be included in sessions:
- The effects of smoking on the body
- The health effects of passive smoking
- How to quit smoking
- How to help others quit smoking
- Smoking and the law
Resources and session delivery are designed to suit the level of English of the class. Materials include pamphlets, posters, video and audio tapes, as well as web based resources.
The session can be integrated into various themes and can be used by the teacher in assessing student language competencies in the Certificate of Spoken and Written English or the Certificate of General Education for Adults.
ESL providers who use Quit education sessions in their classes include:
- Holmesglen TAFE
- Taylor's College
