The AMEP is a government-funded service to assist eligible migrants and humanitarian entrants to improve their English language skills.​ Recent reforms to the AMEP mean more people are now able to access free English tuition for longer and until they reach a higher level of proficiency.

Changes to the AMEP mean people can:

The AMEP offers face-to-face and online classes, a volunteer tutor scheme and distance learning. Full-time, part-time, evening and weekend classes are available. The AMEP also provides free childcare for children under school age while clients are in face-to-face classes.

Permanent visa holders, those who hold an eligible temporary visa, and Australian citizens who previously held a permanent visa may be eligible for the AMEP.  People can contact their nearest service provider to check their eligibility.
