About Australia Pacific Training Coalition
The Australia Pacific Training Coalition (APTC) is a centre for training excellence providing Australian standard training qualifications and skills across the Pacific region. As Australia’s flagship Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) investment in the Pacific, APTC works collaboratively with TVET stakeholders to achieve training delivery outcomes and reforms to Pacific TVET systems. By joining APTC, you will have the opportunity to contribute towards a more skilled, inclusive and productive workforce for the region. APTC has country offices in Fiji, Vanuatu, PNG, Samoa, Solomon Islands and Timor-Leste. The Regional Head Office is located in Suva, Fiji.
The APTC has country offices established in Fiji, Vanuatu, PNG, Samoa, Solomon Islands and Timor-Leste (since July 2021). The Country Offices are supported by a range of services provided from a Regional Head Office (RHO) located in Suva, Fiji.
The APTC is implemented by TAFE Queensland (RTO 0275) on behalf of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).
The Specialist Adviser/Curriculum Developer Aged Care will develop a local qualification in Aged Care within Timor-Leste’s National Qualification Framework, with a potential pathway into the Australian accredited Certificate III in Individual Support (Aged Care). This will enable the development of a pool of skilled aged care workers able to take up labour mobility opportunities.
APTC is working with the National Institute for Labour Force Development (INDMO) and the National Directorate for Vocational Training (DNFP) to develop training pathways into the Australian qualification Certificate III in Individual Support (Aged Care). This is the preferred qualification for aged care workers in Australia, and likely to become mandatory in future. To be eligible to enroll in this qualification, applicants must have a good level of English and preferably hold a relevant local qualification, for example, the Timorese Certificate III in Community Services. It is within this context that APTC proposes to support the development of a Timorese qualification in Aged Care as part of a pathway into the Australian Aged Care qualification
It is proposed that the Common Core units, already developed and delivered as part of the Certificate III in Social Services would also form some or all of the core units for the new Certificate III level qualification where relevant. A Technical Working Group (TWG) will provide guidance, advice and validation for the development of the qualification.
The Specialist Adviser/Curriculum Developer Aged Care reports to the Interim Country Director for all aspects of the Project.
The Specialist Adviser/Curriculum Developer Aged Care needs to be self-directed, and able to work remotely and in Timor Leste for two (2) weeks of the contract – one at the beginning and one at the end of the contract period. Hours required to achieve contracted objectives may exceed standard hours of work.

- TAE 40110/TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment including the LLN unit (TAELLN411), assessment unit (TAEASS502)
- Australian aged care vocational qualification, to the level being developed, or above.
