Market outlook for international education

Indonesia has a growing labour force of more than 135 million people. Fuelling demand for education and training services that cannot be met by domestic institutions. There is also a specific need for in-market English-based training.

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. 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 is so in demand that organisations offer train-the-trainer and online course options. EdTech will play a key role in supporting the future operation of Indonesia’s education sector. Offering significant opportunities for Western Australian EdTech businesses.
