AMEP Forum Nov 2020 – Questions by topic

The AMEP team in the Department of Home Affairs is currently considering these questions and their response will be posted here once it becomes available.

Ms Larkins and the AMEP team in the Department of Home Affairs have generously agreed to a second on-line meeting early in March 2021. The aim of the meeting will be for Alison and the AMEP team to listen to participants’ ideas around some of the key issues raised at the last meeting.

Key questions will be circulated before the meeting. The meeting will consist of break-out groups to discuss the questions, followed by reports back to the whole meeting and discussion.

For further details, please watch this space!

Hosted by the Australian Council of TESOL Associations (ACTA) in partnership with VicTESOL and ATESOL ACT.
