Adult Migrant English Program Community Consultations

Wednesday 8 July 2015


Assistant Minister for Education and Training, Senator the Hon Simon Birmingham, will host a series of community consultations on the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) following the recent completion of an independent evaluation of the programme.

The AMEP Evaluation found that whilst AMEP is a valued programme that has provided many new migrants with the English language skills they need to settle successfully in Australia, there are a number of potential areas for reform or further investigation.

The community consultations will be held in various locations nationally, with a webinar available for stakeholders unable to attend face-to-face. They draw on recommendations within the evaluation report to explore areas of possible reform to ensure AMEP contributes to the broader Australian Government policy objectives relating to employment, settlement and migration.

More information on the community consultations including locations, dates and registrations is available here.
