Australia India Future Skills Initiative

The Australia India Future Skills Initiative will establish a digital platform, delivered in partnership with industry, to connect Australian vocational education, training and skills providers, Indian business, government, learners, and employers.

The initiative will:

  • Deliver leading Australian training capability to meet India’s key future skills needs
  • Support capability development and capacity building in India by upskilling India’s workforce through world-class Australian educational programs
  • Build strategic business relationships to establish Australia as a training partner of choice, upskill India’s workforce and support Indian careers through relevant employment pathways.

The initiative will have four components:

  • Australian training course search and delivery platform, purpose-built for Indian students
  • Promotion and profiling of Australian capability through business, learner, and employer success stories
  • Dedicated Austrade team across Australia and India – leadership and business development managers to secure industry partnerships and facilitate opportunities between Australian providers and Indian industry to deliver formal training qualifications and career pathways
  • Two-way skills missions to support Australian and Indian providers to connect with government and industry in India and Australia, to scope out prospective courses, pathways, and new products.

The Future Skills Initiative will form part of a suite of activities under the Australia India Business Exchange (AIBX) program.

It will also build on the success of the India Digital Education Hub to engage Indian learners and complement the Australia India Innovation Network by growing business, vocational education and technology partnerships between Australia and India.
