Focus on collaboration for India delegation
Monday, April 4 2016
Skills stakeholders and senior government officials head to India this week for a program which includes a meeting of the Australia India Education Council (AIEC) Skills Working Group.
ACPET’s International Engagement Manager Paula Johnston, will represent members on the delegation, designed to raise the profile of Australia’s education, training and research systems. A key emphasis will be on the ongoing potential for collaboration between Australia and India.
A face to face meeting with a refreshed Indian membership will build a sound foundation for progressing the key priorities and forward work plan of the Skills Working Group.
The work of three ACPET members’ operating in India and running pilots of the International Training and Assessment Courses (ITAC) will feature –
- Australian Retail College
- Reach for Training.
Their consortia approach to delivering ITAC in partnership with the Ministry of Rural Development will be highlighted in events organised for the delegation.
Skills for employment in sports roles will also feature, with Australia’s inaugural ambassador to India on education Adam Gilchrist AM, joining the group to help promote career pathways in the growing recreation industry.
After all, no visit to India is complete without a suitable celebration of cricket!
