Learning Options’ International Strategy is based around two key goals. Forging partnerships with like-minded organisations in developing countries will enable us to engage in knowledge exchange and provide the opportunity to meet our responsibility to give back to global communities in an ‘education without borders’ approach. Australia has a vibrant and diverse vocational education sector that is proven to be able to respond to the changing needs of industry. Our international projects assist us to build capacity to internationalise our teaching pedagogies and curriculum (in the context of training packages) and through study tour projects to internationalise the skills of our learners.
Learning Options has available a number of places for vocational students under the Endeavour Mobility Grants. The grants provide an opportunity for our students to have a short term international study experience that contributes to their course of study.
“The Australian Government encourages Australian students to immerse themselves in the academic and social cultures of other countries and provides opportunities for overseas students to study in and experience Australia. The Government also seeks to support Australian higher education providers in further developing and diversifying their linkages with partner institutions overseas.
Administered by the Department of Education and Training, Endeavour Mobility Grants supports engagement between Australia and the rest of the world through student mobility. Funding is provided to Australian tertiary education providers, which in turn provide grants to Australian students to undertake mobility projects globally.”
Grants typically cover the costs of travel and accommodation to the destination, and are available to new and existing students enrolling in vocational education. Eligibility criteria applies. To view current opportunities click here>>>
