About AMEP

AMEP is funded by the Australian Government Department of Home Affairs and provides free English language lessons to eligible migrants and humanitarian entrants. If you have been granted a permanent visa or eligible temporary visa and speak little or no English, you may be eligible for AMEP.

In AMEP classes, you will learn English language skills and information about Australian society. AMEP classes are taught by teachers who are trained to teach English to speakers of other languages. You will meet other new arrivals, with similar backgrounds, experiences and goals, and you may make new friends. All of these together will help you settle successfully in Australia. English language skills are also very important if you wish to work in Australia.

Other benefits include:

  • Access to FREE childcare while you study
  • Learn about Australia’s culture, local services, your rights & the law, workplace practices, & gain valuable employment skills to settle successfully into Australian life
  • Access expert advice on how to achieve your study and employment goals
