National Teleconference- AMEP for Young People

How can the AMEP better meet the needs of the young people?

We want to hear from you!
You are invited to contribute your suggestions about how the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) can be more responsive to young people. 

MYAN is hosting a national consultation to hear directly from AMEP providers and others in the settlement and education sector, about AMEP delivery to young people aged 15-24 years. 

Outcomes from both the Evaluation of the AMEP New Business Model (2018) and the Review into integration, employment and settlement outcomes for refugees and humanitarian migrants to Australia (2019) indicate there is a need for further analysis about how to improve the AMEP program for specific groups, including young people.

MYAN's national consultation will complement this work and other more recent conversations, exploring ways that the AMEP can be more responsive to young people: what more could be done to address constraints and build on good practice?

English language acquisition is critical  for successful settlement and particularly important for young people who will spend the majority of their lives in Australia. MYAN's National Youth Settlement Framework identifies English language skills and education as  key indicators of Active Citizenship- essential foundations for social, economic and civic participation.

Prior to the teleconference MYAN will share  a discussion paper we have recently prepared on this topic. Information from the consultation will be incorporated into this paper  and released in the coming months, including with the Department of Home Affairs.

We welcome your valuable input and look forward to continuing our engagement with the sector in this important work.
