EAL (English as an Additional Language) enrolment information

Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP)

If you are a migrant or refugee you may be eligible for free English lessons and childcare through AMEP. The AMEP has recently changed so visit our AMEP page for more information.

You can also register your interest by submitting our AMEP Expression of interest (EOI) form.


EAL courses

The English as an additional language (EAL) framework of accredited courses has been designed to prepare adults who are learning English as an additional language for a range of educational and vocational pathways.

Students intending to continue their studies within TAFE will find these qualifications provide useful pathways to vocational learning within the Australian Qualifications Framework.

The Certificates are designed to provide English language learning to migrants and refugees who need to develop routine language skills to participate in a range of community, further training or employment contexts.

North Metropolitan TAFE offers both suites of qualifications to EAL students so that they can choose the skills and knowledge they need for their learning beyond English.

EAL enrolment details

Enrolment for some EAL courses requires attending an interview. Lecturers can advise the best qualification and level for you at the interview.
Please bring your passport, along with your visa, and any previous English class results. Enrolments can take up to two hours so please plan your day accordingly.


You must have a Unique Student Identifier (USI) before we can enrol you. Visit the Australian Government's USI website to create your USI:
