Learn about the Commonwealth Government’s vision for English language provision for adult migrants
Presenter Alison Larkins was appointed in late 2019 as Commonwealth Coordinator-General for Migrant Services. Her role is to work closely within the Commonwealth and State/Territory governments, industry, and the community sector to drive improvements to employment, English language, and broader settlement outcomes, and through this work, to promote the contribution of migrants, refugees and humanitarian entrants to Australia.
Experienced AMEP teachers Jakki Cashman (Canberra) and Skye Playsted (Queensland) provided brief responses, followed by audience questions.
The webinar recording, and information about the event, is now available on the VicTESOL website:
