Navitas says a government contract to teach English to new migrants in New South Wales has been extended until June 2017.

The Department of Industry contract is part of the Adult Migrant English Program being delivered across six regions in and around Sydney.

Navitas has been involved in the program since 1998 helping newly-arrived migrants and former refugees with English language and settlement skills to effectively settle in Australia and participate in the community.

Navitas chief executive Rod Jones said the company was pleased to be able to continue to work with the Commonwealth and not-for-profit partners to support Australia's newest migrants and refugees to settle and contribute to NSW and Australia.

"As there are no material changes to the contracts there will be no major changes to client services and we look forward to continuing to provide a high standard of services as always," he said.

Navitas shares were up 42 cents, or 6.06 per cent, to $7.35 at 9.10am.
