Hear from AMEP students what they think of the program


The Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) is funded by the Australian Government.AMEP provides basic tuition in the English Language to help eligible adult migrants and refugees settle successfully in Australia.

There is no charge for eligible migrants and refugees to study through the program.
Classes are offered at a choice of locations with centres in Perth, Mirrabooka, Leederville, Clarkson and Morley.

Welcome to Australia

AMEP students

As part of their course, ESL (English as a Second Language) Cert. IV Employment students hosted a morning tea recently at Central Gallery to welcome new Central AMEP students to Australia.

The event was supported by ‘Welcome to Australia’, an organisation committed to the vision of cultivating a culture of welcome in our nation.

Guest speaker Said Padshah, from the Office of Multicultural Interests, highlighted in his speech that everyone had a right to a safe place and the importance of belonging and being accepted into the community.

Well done to the ESL Cert IV Employment students and their lecturer Mike Morrissey for organising this wonderful event.
