AMES Australia is funded by the Department of Social Services to deliver the Career Pathways Pilot for Refugees in Melbourne from March 2017 to June 2019. 

The Australian government is providing this free service to help skilled or professional refugees gain formal recognition of their skills or qualifications gained overseas, upskill or reskill.  It also wants refugees follow a career pathway that recognises the value of the skills and experiences they bring to Australia. This could be done by undertaking further study or gaining work experience in Australia. 

A Career Pathway Advisor will work with each participant to:

  • Plan a career pathway in Australia.
  • Show each participant how to use existing skills in the Australian workforce and how to obtain recognition of qualifications.
  • Find employment opportunities and training to upskill or reskill.
  • Achieve participant’s career goals.

You can find more information on the Career Pathways Pilot on the Department of Social Services’ website at www.dss.gov.au/careerpathways

The pilot aims to help refugees who have arrived and will arrive in Australia in the past five years through the Humanitarian program (visa subclass 200, 201,202,203 or 204), speak English well, and have a professional or trade skills or qualifications.  Program participants should also be ready to find work.
