Volunteers are vital to helping eligible migrants and refugees practise English, learn about the Australian way of life and connect to the local community. This provides them with a strong foundation to successfully integrate into Australian society.
Melbourne AMEP will provide you with free training online. You don’t need to be a teacher, speak another language or have any qualifications to become a tutor. To find out more, download the documents at the bottom of the page.
On completion of the training you will be matched with a Melbourne AMEP Learner who you will tutor one on one for 1-2 hours a week.
Contact with the learner will be either face to face or via digital and mobile phone platforms such as FaceTime and WhatsApp video calls.

You will be provided with additional training and ongoing support from the Volunteer Tutor Scheme (VTS) Team throughout your involvement.
Changes to the program were put in place from March 2020 as a response to the mandatory government measures for social-distancing due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
