Market outlook on international education

Indonesia has a young and rapidly growing labour force of more than 135 million people. This is fuelling demand for education and training services that cannot be met by domestic institutions, particularly in the areas of agribusiness, construction, port management, transport, digital transformation and healthcare. There is also a specific need for in-market English-based training, particularly in the key outward-facing industries such as tourism and hospitality. The Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IA-CEPA) has also unlocked potential for Vocational Education and Training (VET) providers, enabling training delivery through majority Australian-owned businesses in Indonesia.  

Currently, Indonesia presents an opportunity to grow enrolments into Western Australian education and training providers. Indonesia is a priority market for the Western Australian international education sector. Western Australia is well placed to leverage its popularity as a study destination, proximity to Indonesia, and world-class education offerings to attract more Indonesian students.  

The scale of the required skills training in Indonesia, including in Western Australia’s sister state of East Java, is so far-reaching that organisations offering train-the-trainer and online course options are in demand. EdTech will play a key role in supporting the future operation of Indonesia’s education sector. As such, there are significant opportunities for Western Australian EdTech businesses offering digital marketplaces, online class platforms, school management systems, and communication platforms for students, parents and teachers.
