Initial Assessment

Now that you have registered for the AMEP you will be asked to attend an Initial Assessment.

Now that you have registered for the AMEP you will be asked to attend an Initial Assessment. The Initial Assessment takes between one to two hours. Reception will tell you the day and time of your Initial assessment.  

At the assessment you will complete tasks to help us understand your English language level, so we can place you in a class at the correct level.

We will also discuss your:

  • previous learning
  • employment goals
  • barriers to attending classes
  • study obligations if you are receiving income support payments and
  • the benefits of full-time study.

We also discuss specific support roles in the AMEP such as the Pathway Guidance Adviser. The Pathway Guidance Adviser can help you to plan your study with us and provide community contacts to support your settlement and other issues that may arise.

At assessment you will receive:

  • AMEP code of conduct
  • Absence policy
  • Information on what to do if you have a problem with your class
  • Class times.

You will be asked to sign documents at the end of the Initial assessment to say you have received the information.

At the end of the assessment you will receive an individual pathway goal document called the IPG. The IPG is a document that records your English level, your class achievements, goals, barriers, and other things that may come up during your time in the AMEP. You need to sign your IPG. You will get a copy of the IPG at the initial assessment and when you leave or exit the AMEP.
