The Department of Home Affairs has just released a Discussion Paper and Submission Response form regarding proposed reforms to the AMEP.
In preparation for the upcoming DHA consultation forum, ACTA state/territory associations are holding events to give teachers an opportunity to discuss the proposed changes.
You’re invited to discuss the recently issued Discussion Paper on Reforms to the AMEP at a VicTESOL online event on Monday 7th June 2021 at 4pm AEST. The Discussion Paper proposes significant changes to how the AMEP is funded, including a move to funding contingent on students’ achievement of competencies. There is concern that the proposed changes may undermine the reforms achieved within the AMEP within the last 18 months. If you value your work as a teacher in the AMEP and are concerned about the implications of this method of funding, you should attend this meeting. The meeting is open to all AMEP and SEE teachers.
The various ACTA state/territory associations are holding discussion forums. If you are located within Victoria, Tasmania or South Australia, you are invited to attend the VicTESOL forum on Monday 7th June. There are 100 places available for this forum, please log on early to ensure that you secure a place at this event. The event will start at 4.00pm, but you will be able to log on from 3.45pm to gain a place participate in this event.
