March 2021 - VETASSESS and its online arm, eWorks, will provide ongoing program hosting services to the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment’s International Skills Training courses for teachers.

The International Skills Training courses in technical and vocational education and training (TVET) skills have been developed by Australian industry and facilitated by the Australian Government to help support the global demand for quality training and assessment skills.

They are licensed by the Australian Government to quality registered training organisations (RTOs) for flexible offshore delivery.

VETASSESS has hosted the program since it was launched in 2017 and recently won the tender to continue the service.

VETASSESS and eWorks host and maintain the online assessment platform, assessment services, and administration support to RTOs that deliver the courses.

Courses are offered with assessment materials, and are available in English, Hindi, Indonesian, Mandarin and Vietnamese.

People who complete the courses are granted a certificate and eWorks maintains a database that allows third parties such as potential employers and training organisations to validate the certificate’s authenticity.

VETASSESS Executive Director Rob Thomason says there is a global skills shortage of many technical skills.

“Both governments and individuals are looking for quality training that is recognised internationally,” he said.

“The teachers and trainers who graduate from these courses will gain skills that are in high demand and that they will use to help economic development in their home countries.”

Further information on International Skills Training courses is available on the Department of Education, Skills and Employment’s website here
