Ms Larkins and the AMEP Team agreed to participate in a follow-up “listening” meeting. The meeting was on Wednesday 10th March 2021 7-9pm AEDT. The Zoom meeting focussed on providing this feedback.

  1. What resources do teachers need to ensure quality teaching? How should they be shared?
  2. How can the AMEP support the different needs of the diverse student cohorts, particularly those who have low literacy or limited formal education?
  3. How can the AMEP benefit from advances in educational technology? What resources do teachers and students need in terms of digital and remote learning?
  4. What is the ideal teaching environment (e.g. mode of delivery, class size, mixed levels)?
  5. What role should AMEP providers play in seeking employment outcomes for students?
