At Learning for Employment we offer the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP), which will help you to improve your English skills and settle successfully into Australian society.

AMEP classes are funded by the Australian Government Department of Home Affairs.

The AMEP is offered to eligible migrants and humanitarian visa holders.

You can access FREE English language tuition if you’re an eligible migrant or humanitarian entrant. You may be eligible if you have been:

  • granted a permanent visa OR granted an eligible temporary visa
  • AND speak little or no English.

If you’re between 15 and 17 years of age, you might also be eligible.

You can study AMEP in class, online or at home.

  • Improve your English
  • Learn about life in Australia
  • Learn from qualified teachers
  • Flexible study options – classroom, online or a trained volunteer tutor
  • Volunteer tutors come to your home or another agreed location

You can meet other AMEP students and make new friends.

  • AMEP students come from many different countries and backgrounds
