Skills International was formed in 2006 following requests from international organisations to share our approach to vocational education and skills framework development.
Through our ‘for industry, by industry’ approach to training we are able to improve the educational and career prosperity of individuals and help develop successful businesses, organisations and sustainable knowledge economies.
We do this through a broad range of customised training solutions, including but not limited to the design, development and evaluation of training for all levels of role complexity.
We view our clients as long term partners. Their success is our success. By working together we create the foundations for skills development and make measurable improvements in vocational learning outcomes.
