They are formal study or training opportunities delivered by an Australian higher education provider or a Registered Training Organisation in Australia and/or in partner countries.

The course is offered to up to 25 participants from Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Myanmar – the five MAP countries. Organisations identified by Post in each country may be invited to nominate course participants who can make the appropriate commitments to learning and be released for the time required for the course - including travel to Australia.


All participants must:

  • Minimum IELTS score of 5.5 in Speaking, Listening, Writing and Reading

  • Commitment to prepare and implement an Award Project - an individual or small group development project as part of the course that demonstrates practical application of their learning,
  • Commitment to engage actively and foster networks with multiple stakeholders,
  • Commitment to disseminate learning from the course with colleagues and peers
  • Commitment to travel to Australia as part of the group
