Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP)

South Metropolitan TAFE is proud to deliver English support to adult migrants under the Adult Migrant English Program.

What is the Adult Migrant English Program?

  • The Adult Migrant English Program is funded by the Australian Government and provides up to 510 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.
  • In an Adult Migrant English Program class, you will learn English language skills and information about Australian society. 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.
  • The Adult Migrant English Program is delivered by approved service providers are over 300 locations across Australia in major cities as well as rural and regional areas. Classes are taught by teachers who are trained to teach English to speakers of other languages.
