The State of South Australia moved closer to developing a key vocational education and training partnership with Kalyani Skills that would use TAFE SA’s training knowledge and expertise.At a formal exchange of a Memorandum of Understanding in Pune, Gail Gago, Minister of Employment, Higher Education and Skills, South Australia welcomed the development between TAFE SA, the largest provider of vocational education and training in South Australia and Kalyani Skills, part of the Indian multinational conglomerate The Kalyani Group.
“India has a skills shortage in a range of areas where TAFE SA has expertise that is recognised by employers in Australia and overseas as being of the highest quality,” said Bhavin Shah, Director – Kalyani Skills. “TAFE SA and Kalyani Skills will deliver training in areas including Engineering, Mining, Transport, Electrical, Electronics, Building and Construction. We look forward to a long term association with TAFE SA.”
“TAFE SA has a great record in helping organisations with evolving needs to improve the skills of their staff in South Australia and they will now work with Kalyani Skills to bring that same know-how to India.”
“We hope this is the first step in a long and productive partnership that will see TAFE SA working with Kalyani Skills to help develop an industry-ready workforce for India,” Gago said.
“Proposed academic association could include training and assessment resources, guidance and advice to set up frameworks for delivery, teacher training and tours that would take Indian students to TAFE campuses in South Australia.”
