The Australian Government says that it will continue to build on its longstanding investment in Pacific skills by strengthening Australia’s flagship Pacific vocational training facility.

Since its inception in 2007, the Australia-Pacific Technical College has transformed the
lives of over 12,000 graduates from 14 Pacific Island countries by providing them with
Australian-standard technical and vocational qualifications.

The APTC will be rebranded to the Australia Pacific Training Coalition to reflect changes
in its approach, which are designed to strengthen innovation in the delivery of training
and increase engagement with the private sector.

These enhancements will see a stronger emphasis placed on boosting employment
outcomes, addressing skills shortages in the region and strengthening technical and
vocational educational training systems in Pacific Island countries.
