English as an Additional Language
AMEP – Adult Migrant English Program (Colac)
SEE Program – The Skills for Education and Employment (Colac)
The Skills for Education and Employment (SEE) program is funded by the Australian Government Department
of Education and Training.
The Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training.
One way to successfully integrate into an English-speaking community is by having the ability to speak and write the language. If English isn’t your first language, Diversitat Training offers several Adult Migrant English programs which are designed to develop the language and literacy skills of culturally and linguistically diverse students.
For people who are unable to attend these courses we also offer a tutor program which will not only assist adult migrants and refugees to learn English, but will help them to embrace the Australian culture and engage within the wider community.
AMEP in Australia (Colac)
AMEP Program Brochure
For people who wish to complete a basic course in spoken and written English, our Adult Migrant English Program, otherwise known as AMEP, is the place to start. This will give adult migrants and refugees an introduction to the English Language and help them to settle more easily into the Australian way of life.
Funded by the Australian Government, the course not only covers the basics of English, but it also teaches students about the country’s culture and customs, and about Australian society today. It’s a way to meet other new arrivals and to share experiences and make new friends, and to help migrants and refugees feel that they’re not the only ones in their situation.
The course is available in either a full time or part time format and takes place in a classroom at Colac Community Library and Learning Centre, 173 Queen Street, Colac VIC 3250
