If you are a newly arrived migrant, we have a number of English language courses designed to enable speakers of other languages to participate more fully in Australian community life, work and study. Our Certificate II in Spoken and Written English is designed for newly arrived migrants, residents and citizens who are post-beginner speakers of English language. Learners will develop skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing in English. They will also learn about services and information to help them take part in further education and training, seek and maintain work, and to participate in community life in Australia. The course is free for those with Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) entitlement. AMEP is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training and has a number of flexible delivery options including in the community, via distance, home tutoring, or a combination of the three. This pre-vocational program requires an appropriate level of English language proficiency and appropriate visa/citizenship, which will be determined by an ESOL teacher at a pre-enrolment interview/assessment. Students are required to bring their passports and visa documents to pre-enrolment. Students will be assessed via practical demonstrations, oral questioning, role play, written tasks and observation. Successful graduates are eligible to apply to study the Certificate III Spoken and Written English.

Why study something again if you already have the skills and knowledge? Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is about helping you get your qualification faster and getting you to where you want to be!
Working with one of our RPL assessors we’ll review your life and work experiences as well as any previous study you may have done to confirm just what we can match up with your current course of study.
Note: Some short, licensing or compliance courses, eg Food Safety for Supervisors or First Aid are not granted RPL as demonstrated competency is required by regulatory authorities.
