Under the agreement, TAFE SA will use AFPA’s curriculum to develop new learning materials and courses.

TAFE SA interim chief executive Alexandra Reid said the partnership would help develop a pipeline of skilled workers for the Future Submarine Program based at Osborne.

“We are really pleased to have this partnership with AFPA, who are leaders in the maritime sector and have partnered with the major French shipbuilders,” she said.

“Working with another experienced training organisation will ensure our curriculum and skills development aligns with the local needs of the defence and shipbuilding industry.”

A working group will be established between the two providers to support the collaboration.

According to French media, the two-year partnership was signed on Monday.

AFPA has previously worked with French shipbuilder Naval Group to deliver training programs in countries including Chile, India and Brazil.
