The Commonwealth Department of Education and Training (DET) has commissioned an Evaluation of the AMEP, which is being undertaken by an independent consultancy group called Social Compass: www.socialcompass.com.
ACTA (Australian Council of TESOL Associations) is convening a Forum on Saturday 2 March at Sydney University to discuss the matters covered in the Evaluation.
This is an important ACTA initiative which needs your support. It would be great if you could attend.
