Skills International was formed in 2006 following requests from international organisations to share our approach to vocational education and skills framework development.

Through our ‘for industry, by industry’ approach to training we are able to improve the educational and career prosperity of individuals and help develop successful businesses, organisations and sustainable knowledge economies.

We do this through a broad range of customised training solutions, including but not limited to the design, development and evaluation of training for all levels of role complexity.

We view our clients as long term partners. Their success is our success. By working together we create the foundations for skills development and make measurable improvements in vocational learning outcomes.

Skills International is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Skills Organisation, New Zealand’s largest industry training organisation, providing training management and support to over 20 industry sectors.


Our partnership approach to vocational education aligns people, needs and expectations to attaining shared goals. It improves ongoing educational and career prosperity for individuals and contributes to the development of successful businesses and sustainable knowledge economies.

We view our clients as long term partners. Their success is our success. Together, we work to create the foundations for skills development. The work we do creates a ripple effect – a series of outcomes that spread ever-outwards, eventually touching every element of industry and society.


To make a positive impact on the working lives of people around the world. We provide the foundations for skills development for organisations, countries and the world we all live in.
