Department of Home Affairs Event
16th & 17th June
The Department of Home Affairs has opened public consultations on a new business model for the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP). The new business model will complement recent legislative reforms that allow more migrants to access the program for longer and until they achieve a higher level of English proficiency.
The Department of Home Affairs (the Department) has released the discussion paper Reform of the Adult Migrant English Program and will undertake a series of forums as part of the consultation process. The paper details the next stage of the reforms, expected to commence in 2023, that aim to generate better quality outcomes for migrants and enable greater access and participation.
The Department will be running two forums for EAL teachers and is accepting Expressions of Interest (EOI) from those who wish to attend:
· AMEP Teachers Forum: Group A – Wednesday 16 June 2021 16:00 – 18:00 AEST
· AMEP Teachers Forum Group B – Thursday 17 June 2021 18:00 – 20:00 AEST
If you are interested in attending one of these forums, please complete the EOI form below and email the form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Calendar invitations will be sent out once EOIs have been finalised.
Please note that the forums above have limited capacity. If allocations for the forums are exceeded, the Department can look into running additional forums at a later date.
Further information about these stakeholder consultations can be found here.
Enquiries about the stakeholder consultations should also be directed to the AMEP Design mailbox.
