Youth student support services are available using the latest technology, a mix of activities and a supportive network of young people of similar age.
Student support services
Navitas Skilled Futures gives young people the skills and experience to be whatever they want to be in Australia.
Using the latest technology, our programs help young people improve their English language and digital skills for employment or further education.
Classes for young people are available in the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) and the Skills for Education and Employment (SEE) program. This is an opportunity to meet new people and create a better future with more skills and lifelong friends.
New AMEP Innovative Project: Grow, Move & Make
Starting in July 2023 is a hands-on AMEP Innovative Project to support local youth aged 16-28 years of age into local gardening, landcare and handyperson work.
This new and exciting 12-week course will give you opportunities to identify, explore and network in major industries in Australia.
Over this course you will learn about and experience the following industries:
- Horticulture and Landcare – parks and gardens, nurseries, florists
- Transport and Logistics – transport, warehousing, delivery
- Construction – handywork, labouring, maintenance
Our Youth Classes include:
- Stimulating, youth-specific learning activities
- Support and guidance from a dedicated youth project officer
- Work-based learning, e.g. barista training and cafe fundraiser
- Interactive learning using Chromebooks, iPads and virtual-reality headsets
- Pathways to vocational training and university studies
- Excursions and recreational activities
- Social media and cyber security training
- Volunteering opportunities
All AMEP students are eligible for free* childcare.
Other Support Services
If you have young children, you can still study with us. We work with a childcare company called KU Children’s Services to offer you free* childcare while you study with Navitas Skilled Futures.
At Navitas Skilled Futures, we know it is not easy to find a job and feel at home when you cannot speak English. That is why we can talk to you in your own language.
Our Volunteer Tutor Scheme is designed to help migrants and refugees who cannot attend our AMEP classes, or who need extra learning support.
Work placements are where you work somewhere for a short time with real bosses, in real companies. We have helped hundreds of people get new skills for their CVs and find jobs this way, and we can help you too.
While we make sure our lessons are interesting and fun, we do a lot more for young people than just sit in a classroom. We focus on how young people learn best.
