Creating Skills for life

Partners and Industry

APTC was designed to build on the existing strengths of the region and work closely with other Pacific educational institutions and training providers.

In practice, this means that APTC has established agreements with Pacific organisations to use their facilities and, where necessary, upgrade them to meet the requirements for Australian VET accredited course delivery.

We acknowledge the following partners:


Papua New Guinea



Solomon Islands
