Career Pathways Pilot for Humanitarian Entrants

The Career Pathways Pilot for Humanitarian Entrants was a federally funded initiative that focused on helping skilled or professional refugees gain formal recognition of their overseas skills or qualifications. It also supported refugees to follow a career pathway that recognises the value of the skills and experience they bring to Australia. 
 
AMES Australia’s delivery of the pilot started in July 2017 and finished on the 30th of June 2019.
Whilst our 361 clients are continuing to make breakthroughs every day, upon conclusion of the program, 102 had secured employment, with the majority securing work in their previous profession or a related role.  A further 170 were engaged in further study, which means that 75% of our client base were progressing in their career pathway.
 
The AMES Australia Career Pathways Pilot team would like to thank the Australian Government Department of Social Services for funding the pilot, the other community service organisations who assisted our clients, the employers who provided opportunities, and most of all, our clients who worked so hard to establish their new life in Australia.
 
To ensure  that skilled and professional humanitarian entrants continue to receive support in obtaining meaningful employment and in achieving their career goals, AMES Australia is offering  the Refugee Mentoring Program to eligible clients.
