The Australia Pacific Training Coalition (APTC) is a centre for training excellence and collaboration with over 12 years of experience and broad expertise.

As Australia’s flagship Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) investment in the Pacific region, APTC works collaboratively with national governments, development partners, private sector, organisations for people living with disabilities, civil society organisations (CSO) and Pacific TVET institutions regionally and across nine Pacific Island countries: Fiji, Samoa, Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Nauru, Tuvalu, Tonga and Kiribati.

We work closely with industry representatives around the Pacific to ensure our training programs are relevant and aligned with current and future career opportunities for our graduates – careers where skilled employees are in high demand.

APTC was announced as an Australian Government initiative at the Pacific Islands Forum in 2006 and welcomed by Pacific Island leaders. We are supported by the Australian Government through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and managed by TAFE Queensland (RTO 0275). 

We offer Australian qualifications from Certificate III to Diploma level in various vocational areas. Courses are delivered by highly regarded and qualified trainers, and graduates will enjoy the benefits of an internationally recognised, accredited Australian qualification.


Goal and Program Outcomes 

The Australia Pacific Training Coalition (APTC) is currently in its third stage (2018-2022).

Our goal is: ‘A more skilled, inclusive and productive workforce enhances Pacific prosperity’.

Our supporting purpose is: ‘The skills and attributes available to employers from Technical, Vocational Education and Training (TVET) systems align with labour market requirements’.

Our goal and purpose are supported by the achievement of three end-of-program outcomes (EOPOs):

a) Graduates have improved employment outcomes

b) Co-investment in skills training increases

c) Selected TVET partners demonstrate quality TVET provision.
