AMEP supports student to get qualified
After leaving her job as a teacher in Sri Lanka, Inoka is returning to work in the education sector in Australia.
In October 2021 Inoka joined her family in Australia and in February 2022 started in an AMEP class at Laverton Community Centre. After she developed more confidence in English she enrolled in the Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care, while also continuing in her AMEP class.
Continuing in AMEP while doing the Certificate allowed Inoka to have extra support for her English. She was able to build her language abilities while getting an accredited qualification at the same time.
When she came to do the placement part of her certificate, she had the skills and language that she needed to succeed. She finished the Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care in March 2023 and immediately found a job.
Inoka is enjoying her new job so much that she wants to complete a diploma. She enrolled in a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care in May and is happy to be working in an industry where there is great demand for qualified staff.
