West Java Institutional Development Project
Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT)
Years active: 2000 – 2004
The West Java Institutional Development Project was part of the broader Indonesia-Australia Partnership for Skills Development, which sought to improve the capacity of public and private sector agencies to improve workforce skills in selected industries and provinces. This was to be achieved by planning and providing training based on well-defined and industry endorsed competency standards, high-quality teaching methods and learning materials, and reliable assessment and certification of competencies.
The West Java Institutional Development Project aimed to:
- Develop the capabilities of five Indonesian government TVET institutions in Jakarta, Bandung and Tangerang as prototypes
- Develop credible off-the-job providers of vocational training to private sector companies engaged in garment construction, electrical and light mechanical engineering.
The project required working with the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin), five national government TVET institutions and local companies engaged in the garment, electrical and metal/light engineering working in the localities of the five training institutions.
Scope Global provided full project management and implementation services, fellowship training in Australia, and mentoring and capacity building services to training institutions. Successful project activities included the training of institution administrators and teachers/instructors, the upgrading of learning resources including workshop resources, improved curricula and upgraded teaching, learning and assessment materials.
