MYAN: How can the AMEP better support English language learning for young people? Discussion Paper

Sep 14, 2020 | Education & Training, From Our Sector, NSOS

MYAN has prepared this discussion paper to highlight the benefits of a youth focussed approach to English language classes, and provide guidance on how this can be achieved in order to strengthen the responsiveness of AMEP to the youth cohort. While this paper has been prepared in the context of a number of reports assessing the effectiveness of the AMEP, none has given any focused attention to the youth cohort.

This paper presents findings from consultations with AMEP providers and other sector representatives held in late 2019 and 2020, and more recently through regular online meetings in response to COVID-19. It includes examples of good practice in the Appendix, and a set of recommendations MYAN prepared for government as they consider the future direction of the program.
