Indonesian delegation in WA
Monday, September 14 2015
Australian Council for Private Education and Training (ACPET) last week hosted delegates from Indonesia’s APTISI (Asosiasi Penguruan Tinggi Swasta Indonesia, or the Private Higher Education Association of Indonesia) to officially sign a Memorandum of Co-operation (MoC) between the two membership associations in front of over 60 delegates and guests.
The Indonesian Consul General for Western Australia Mr Ade Padmo Sarwono, witnessed the signing of the agreement between Professor Edy Suandi Hamid – APTISI President and Mr Andrew Crevald –ACPET WA Director.
The Memorandum of Co-operation outlines the strategic intent of the partnership and a variety of initiatives that the two associations can build on including educational programs to encourage greater collaboration between members. The networking event created numerous discussions, in particular how the two countries can develop a mapping document of the two countries qualification frameworks that will encourage and facilitate relationship negotiations between members.
The APTISI delegation, consisting of 38 members from 25 Universities, visited 3 ACPET member colleges engaging in educational discussions and site tours. Thank you to the Australian School of Management and Australian College of Applied Education, Marr Mooditj Training and The University of Notre Dame for taking the time to introduce your College and its educational offerings to the delegates.
ACPET looks forward to continuing these educational exchanges with APTISI, especially in the area of professional development programs for managers, academics and staff.
