Refugee Youth AMEP consultation
Join us to share your thoughts on how young people from refugee backgrounds experience learning English in the Adult Migrant English Program
About this Event

The Refugee Education Special Interest Group, Multicultural Youth Advocacy Network, and the new 'Refugee Youth' Consultancy Group (CG) in the Australian Council of TESOL Associations are co-hosting a meeting to consult on how young people from forced migration backgrounds experience English language learning through the Adult Migrant Program

The session from 3-4pm will be co-facilitated with MYAN, and will revisit their consultation on the AMEP and multicultural young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds. This discussion will then form the basis for a meeting between the Department of Home Affairs and MYAN, RESIG, and ACTA in May 2024 (date TBC). MYAN will also bring two youth multicultural youth advocates to this meeting to speak to their experiences of English language learning.

If you join us at 2pm, we will start with a general consultation on the mission/vision statement for the new CG, as well as scoping ideas for ongoing advocacy.

CG Membership is open to members of state and territory TESOL associations who are ACTA members. To find out how to join your local association, go to Contact Us – ACTA is setting up a new Consultancy Group tasked to improve our knowledge about the learning needs and aspirations of refugee youth who are learning English as an additional language, and to develop policy proposals and provide leadership in advocacy for these young people. The Group will seek to collaborate closely with other groups with related aims.
