Young Adult Migrant Education Courses (YAMEC)


Now's a good time to develop your English language skills – Melbourne Polytechnic will support you all the way from our courses to helping you gain employment.

If you’re keen to get into an apprenticeship, further your studies or get right into employment, our YAMAC courses will benefit you.

Our Young Adult Migrant Education (YAMEC) courses cover English language skills for those not from an English-speaking background. Designed specifically for young migrant and refugees (15 to 26 years of age) who have not completed secondary schooling or who need to develop their English literacy skills. You’ll also have access to our libraries on campus – so it’s a great time to get ahead.

Melbourne Polytechnic is committed to our migrant and refugee communities, helping you overcome any barriers you may have to education. You will be supported through pathway planning with your Managed Individual Pathways (MIP) worker and community agencies.

YAMEC is the first step on an educational and vocational pathway into mainstream education, training and employment. Advanced classes undertake the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) together with ESL and vocational subjects.

Employment options may include:

  • Apprenticeships
  • Academic studies
  • Employment and career opportunitites
  • Entry into pre-apprenticeships
  • Traineeships
  • Vocational training

These courses are offered at both our Preston and Epping campuses.
