Australia Awards Fellowships
TAFE Queensland works with its partners in developing countries to deliver customised training solutions which build the capacity of participants to contribute to the development of their organisations and countries.
Through the Australian Aid funded program, Australia Awards Fellowships, TAFE Queensland has been working with governments in Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Nauru and many others to develop their Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) systems. These programs have provided opportunities for Fellows to undertake short term study and professional development at TAFE Queensland.
See what our Australia Awards Fellowships Alumni have to say:
"The passion and confidence which female staff have in different levels of management motivated and inspired me in my work. That is to be more confident and output-orientated in my division outcomes. This program made me see things in a more worldly view rather than the organisational boundaries I once had. The program so far outlined the fact that Papua New Guinea's TVET sectors main focus now is to be building skill capacity in assisting industry to meet the demand for labour by skilling the potential workforce."

" When I return to my country, I would like to identify people with a disability in my area and develop a training program which is suitable to their physical condition using the skills and knowledge I have learned during the fellowship to develop it."
