Adult Migrant English Program – AMEP
We deliver the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) in four regions across Australia in partnership with Navitas English, the largest provider of English language training in Australia.
About the program
The Adult Migrant English Program is an English language, literacy and numeracy program for new migrants and humanitarian entrants who have lived in Australia for less than five years. It gives participants functional English language skills to confidently participate in Australian community and work life.
Our qualified trainers will deliver courses in a safe and supportive environment so that learning is fun and flexible, taking into consideration an individual’s needs and circumstances.
The service is free, providing up to 510 hours of tuition by a government approved qualified educator. Depending on a client’s required level of support, pre and post tuition is available for improved learning outcomes.
