Welcome Merchant Partnership
We’ve partnered with Welcome Merchant to help support and amplify the stories of refugee entrepreneurs.
Welcome Merchant x NSF
We’re delighted to announce our new partnership with Welcome Merchant. Their mission? To elevate the voices of entrepreneurs who identify as a refugee or as a person seeking asylum in Australia.
Through our partnership, we’ll share the latest advice on the essential skills and tools that refugees and migrants need to start their own businesses here in Australia. We’ll also highlight and amplify the stories of our students who have gone on to start their own business.
We want to continue to help more and more people to build a better future, and we believe that learning English and digital skills is the first step to reach those goals.

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.
