Amep Tafe Nsw

The Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) funded by the Department of Home Affairs, is available to eligible migrants and refugees wanting to learn pre-vocational English language and settlement skills, to participate socially and economically within Australian society. The AMEP Volunteer Tutor Program, AMEP Volunteer Tutor Program - TAFE NSW, is a sub-program of the AMEP. It offers informal language tuition for migrants and refugees, provided by trained volunteers on a one-to-one basis, outside the classroom environment either online or face to face.

Why become an AMEP volunteer tutor?

It provides:

• a great opportunity to get to know other cultures while helping AMEP eligible students settle into their new life in Australia

• a chance to give something back to the community and make a difference to the people in the community

• an opportunity to develop new skills or enhance existing knowledge and experience.

How much time do I need to dedicate?

When volunteers join the program, they make a six-month commitment to meet with their student, for at least one hour per week. AMEP Volunteer Tutor Program sessions are negotiated between the AMEP volunteer tutor and the student - with the flexibility to reschedule sessions when required. The sessions can be face to face in a mutually agreed public location or can be delivered online.

What experience do I need?

No previous experience is needed. Just a desire to help new migrants settle and gain confidence in speaking and listening to English.
As an AMEP volunteer tutor, you will receive training with a short online self-paced course, then access to resources and further support such as workshops run by AMEP teachers.
