RMIT Training CEO speaks at Indonesia Australia Business Week

RMIT Training CEO, Rachel Holthouse had the privilege of meeting the Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull and sharing with him details of RMIT Training’s work in supporting English needs across Indonesia’s transport sector.

The CEO of RMIT Training, Rachel Holthouse, recently attended two notable events in Indonesia to share RMIT Training’s work in providing education solutions overseas. 

The Indian Ocean Rim Association Business Summit (IORA) and Indonesia Australia Business Week 2017 (IABW) were both held in Jakarta. 

The President of Indonesia, the President of South Africa and the President of Mozambique were among the high-level speakers at IORA, with Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop also in attendance.

At the second annual IABW event, Australia was represented by the Minister of Trade, Tourism and Investment; the Assistant Minister for Vocational Education and Skills; and a brief appearance by Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull.

Ms Holthouse was a plenary speaker, presenting before 300 high-profile government delegates. 

“It was a great opportunity to share some of the unique capability we have in RMIT Training and to profile the RMIT brand,” Ms Holthouse said.

“There is a renewed spirit of cooperation between the two countries and significant growth in several sectors, creating opportunities for education solutions.” 

Ms Holthouse shared the stage with the CEO of Austrade, CEO of Coca-Cola Amatil and the Head of International Affairs, Indonesian Chamber of Commerce. She also addressed the afternoon education session expanding on RMIT Training’s experience of working in Indonesia.

IABW helps create more export opportunities for Australian businesses by focusing on industry sectors where Australian expertise is well matched to commercial potential in Indonesia.

This year’s program highlighted opportunities in vocational education and training, tourism, financial services and technology, water and sustainable urban design and agribusiness supply chains.

Through a partnership with the Indonesian Ministry of Transportation’s Human Resources Development Transportation Agency, RMIT Training is providing Aviation English training to instructors and cadet pilots across the region and is exploring other education solutions.

RMIT Training supports students, academics and professionals nationally and internationally through their Informit products and services and English language solutions. One of the professional sectors with which they work closely is the Aviation industry where they partner with a network of airlines, air traffic control organisations, civil aviation authorities and aviation training organisations to present comprehensive English language solutions including face-to-face learning.
