Standard 1 AQTF Standards for Accredited Courses

2.1 Purpose of the course

The purpose of this course is to raise awareness about developing business capabilities in Asia for the Australian workforce. It will meet the needs of candidates conducting business in Asia and candidates who intend to conduct business in Asia. The course is to be designed with a view to support Australia’s export market, which is highly valued by Asia (especially China).

• Asian business cultural capability

• preparing for workforce management and tailoring products and services for the Asian market.


3. Development of the course

Standards 1 and 2 AQTF Standards for Accredited Courses

3.1 Industry / enterprise/ community needs


The development of this course was commissioned by the Department of Education and Training (Victoria) based on recommendations in the ‘Food to Asia Action Plan’ Report published by the Victorian government Department of Primary Industries, March 2014. The report, in the context of ‘supporting the development of leadership, management and export skills’, recommended examining the demand for a new intensive short course for current and future food sector leaders focused on understanding supply chains for export to Asia and developing insights into Asian markets.

Over the last 20 years or so our growth has been driven by the urbanisation and industrialisation of Asia. Emerging economies, led by China, now account for the majority of global growth. This means that the way we conduct business has changed – we cannot be insular about with whom we conduct business.

When describing the importance of conducting business in Asia, the Chief Executive Officer at ANZ, Mike Smith said: “we have to stop thinking about the risks of doing business in Asia and start thinking about the risks of not doing business in Asia.”1

A market research study undertaken by Asialink Business focusses on the needs of industry. Asialink Business supports Australian business and organisations to build ‘Asia capabilities and improve Australia’s engagement with Asia’. The research study was conducted to better understand the challenges and capability requirements of Australian businesses operating in Asia.

The content of this course has been determined and endorsed by the Steering Committee comprising a majority of industry representatives through a range of consultative processes including:


  • a group comprising a range of stakeholders including industry representatives and content experts

  • Asialink research

  • research by project team

  • working party of content experts

See:

Appendix 1 Course content developed by stakeholders



    • Training Demand/Job Search

    • Skills and knowledge mapping

After mapping the vocational outcomes against national training packages and accredited courses, it was found that there is no qualification that provides training in the vocational outcomes (Section B 2. above) required for effective contribution within business capability in Asia.

Anticipated employment opportunities include:



  • Small business operators in Asia

  • Operating Coordinators/Business Support Coordinators for business in Asia

  • Sales Coordinators for business in Asia

  • International Import/ Export Officers

  • Asian Recruitment personnel

  • Regional Communications Operators

  • Asian Speaking Business Development Sales Personnel

  • Asia Business Consultants

  • Business Development Officers for Asia

  • Business Performance Analysts in Asia

  • Events Coordinators in Asia

  • Fund managers in Asia etc. (see Appendix 1 for more information)

The job search analysis, and the associated knowledge and skills requirements, have been ratified by members of the Steering Committee and matched to the course structure.

Industry support for the course is confirmed through the active participation of industry members on the Steering Committee.
