AMEPRC National Forums

AMEP National Forums 2009

AMEP National Forums are hosted by the AMEP Research Centre in different states and regions of Australia. The Forums offer opportunities for professional staff with program management and curriculum responsibilities to network with Research Centre academics, senior Department of Immigration and Citizenship officers, and peers from AMEP service provider organisations and to consider issues that impact on program delivery.

AMEP Service Provider Heads are invited to nominate key AMEP staff to participate in the 2009 program of National Forums.

AMEP National Forums 2008

Pathways to settlement

At this forum, participants will engage in the development of a draft for a national Individual Learning Plan (ILP) for students. Discussions will include the primary purpose of the ILP, its role in developing learning pathways, and key elements in its design and content. It is expected that the outcome will be a recommended model that will be submitted to the Department of Immigration and Citizenship for endorsement; and, if supported, would be implemented by the AMEP nationwide.
