What Is The Adult Migrant English Program?

The Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) provides unlimited hours of 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. Some migrant youths aged between 15 and 17 years of age may also be eligible.

What Will I Learn?

In your AMEP classes you will be learning English language skills that will help you settle successfully in Australia with people with similar backgrounds, experiences and goals. You will learn about Australian values, cultures and laws, and a range of topics that will make it easier for you to work, study and enjoy life in Australia.  Some of these topics include;

  • life skills, culture, loss of family or friends
  • health and safety
  • managing money and banking
  • public transport and driving
  • the child care and education system
  • the medical system and services
  • the law and legal systems

Class Times

STEPS provide flexible class times to fit in with your family, work, or other study commitments.  You have the option of attending classes during the day or night, on the days and times that suit you best. Please check class times with each location.

Additional Supports

To help you get the most out of your training we offer additional services to give you the best chance possible of building your skills. We offer services including

  • At Home Tutoring
