Road to Indonesia Development Forum 2019: Inspiring Session

Researchers, policy minds, private sector and civil society representatives, as well as Australia Awards Scholarships alumni convened at Road to Indonesia Development Forum 2019 in Jakarta to explore skills and education policy development to be embedded on the supply side of the labour market to create workforce of the 21st century in Indonesia. In March, these scholars spent two weeks to study Labour Market Needs Forecasting for Education Policy short course at Griffith University, with the aim to push for reform particularly on the Vocational Education and Training system to be more driven by what the industries need to ensure a well-functioning and inclusive labour market in the future. At the workshop’s inspiring session, participants also had the chance to hear talks from Putri Santoso, co-founder of Koptul (Deaf Coffee), to promote inclusion of people with disabilities in the workforce, and Widia Jessti, Head of Talent Acquisition, Ministry of Stated-owned Enterprises, to share her experience on participating in the Australia Awards – Short Term Awards on “Labour Market Needs Forecasting for Education Policy”.
