Welcome to ATESOL ACT
ATESOL ACT is the Association of Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages in the Australian Capital Territory. Our members work within a range of contexts including school education, adult new arrivals programs, ELICOS, tertiary studies and research programs.
We aim to support all teachers and learners of English as an additional language within the ACT. We offer workshops and seminars which cater for all professionals working in the TESOL field and welcome mainstream teachers with EAL/D students.
Following a nationwide survey of managers, teachers and volunteers in the AMEP in late 2018 and early 2019, and three forums held over March and April, the Australian Council of TESOL Associations (ACTA) has now made a submission to the Evaluation of the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) “new business model”. This submission has been co-authored by our Vice President, Helen Moore.
The Evaluation of the AMEP “New Business Model” is being conducted by the consultancy group Social Compass (http://socialcompass.com/). The intended project outcomes are listed in the Statement of Requirements and the proposed methodology is outlined in the Evaluation Methodology Overview.

Further to ACTA’s previous submission, and in the light of additional feedback we have received as a result of its wider circulation and placement on our website, the Australian Council of TESOL Associations ACTA offers seven further recommendations to the Evaluation of the AMEP “new business model”.
The ATESOL ACT Committee has devised some upcoming professional learning events. See the events page.
