About Us

Supporting Language, Literacy, Numeracy and Digital development for diverse audiences since 1988

Enabling people to live their best life in Australia

Navitas English is contracted by Australian government agencies to deliver programs that help students from diverse backgrounds to improve their English language and employability skills. 

Since 1988, Navitas English has been delivering the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) to migrants and refugees on behalf of the Australian Government, and in 2010 successfully tendered to deliver the Skills for Education and Employment (SEE) program to jobseekers with language, literacy and numeracy barriers to employment and career pathways.

Most recently Navitas English has commenced delivery of the Career Transition Assistance (CTA) program to assist mature-aged job seekers with practical training for employment. The AMEP is delivered through colleges in South Western Sydney and the ACT, while the SEE program is delivered from sites across metropolitan Sydney. Along with these major programs, the Navitas English team continues to deliver and tender for other vital programs in areas such as youth employment and career pathways.​

Here is a bit more information about our programs:

At Navitas English we want to help you to live a settled and stable life in Australia. Navitas English has provided settlement English language training in the AMEP since 1998 to more than 200,000 newly arrived migrants and refugees.

We help people from different backgrounds and cultures to find a job, learn to speak and write English and to settle into life in Australia. We do this by offering free English programs and working with you on your employability skills.

Our classrooms use the latest digital technology. They are safe places to learn, with experienced teachers who understand your challenges. Best of all, when you learn with us, you become part of our multicultural community, giving you the chance to make friendships that last a lifetime.

At Navitas English we offer programs funded by the Australian and NSW Governments. These programs are:

  • The Skills for Education and Employment (SEE) program, which gives eligible people up to 650 hours of free* training in job skills, language, literacy and numeracy
  • The Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP), offering free* English language tuition to eligible migrants and humanitarian entrants
  • The Career Transition Assistance (CTA) Program is a tailored employment preparation program focussed on developing a mix of soft skills, technical skills and digital literacy. It is targeted towards mature age participants (over 45 years of age) wanting to get back into employment who don’t yet have the skills or confidence they need to adapt to a work environment that’s changing quickly.

The Skills for Education and Employment (SEE) program, Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) and the Career Transition Assistance (CTA) program are funded by the Australian Government.
