Adult Migrant English Program - AMEP

What is the Adult Migrant English Program?

The Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) can help you to learn English. The AMEP provides up to 510 hours of free English lessons and childcare to newly-arrived eligible migrants, and refugees. Some students may be eligible for additional hours.

The Adult Migrant English Program is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training.

What will I learn?

You will learn English to help you settle in Australia. You will learn about Australian society, culture, customs and working in Australia. You will learn speaking, listening, reading and writing skills - for everyday living, for work and for further study.

How can I study?

  • Day, evening and Saturday classes
  • by Distance Learning
  • at home with a tutor
  • on the computer with self-paced e-modules

How do I know I'm eligible?

You can phone us or visit the AMEP office at a campus near you to find out if you are eligible for the AMEP. Please have your visa and passport with you.

How do I start?

You need to attend an interview at one of our campuses so we can assess your English level and arrange a suitable learning plan for you. You must register for the AMEP within 6 months of your visa commencement date or arrival in Australia.

Is childcare available?

We can arrange childcare for you to attend AMEP classes. Free childcare is available for children under school age.

Can I work while studying?

Yes, TAFE NSW can arrange a study program to fit with your work schedule.

Can I study English after I finish 510 hours?

It is important to attend your classes every day so you can improve your English. Students who have good attendance and make good progress can apply for extra hours after they finish 510 hours.

Are there any special programs?

There are general English courses and courses to prepare you for work. Some courses have a vocational subject and work experience. Some of these courses help you to work in aged care, hospitality, childcare and other kinds of work.

How can I become a volunteer English tutor?

The Home Tutor Scheme matches volunteer tutors with newly arrived migrants and refugees to provide one-to-one English tuition in students' homes.

As a volunteer tutor you will receive comprehensive training – no previous teaching experience is required. For volunteers this is a great opportunity to get to know other cultures while helping the students settle into their new life in Australia.

For more information about volunteering with the Home Tutor Scheme, please call 02 9942 0224 or email us on amephts@tafensw.edu.au.
