Design Summary for the Australia Pacific Security College

As previously advised, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) is holding an industry briefing followed by a market engagement briefing on the Australia Pacific Security College (APSC) design on Thursday 2 August.

To further inform the market, DFAT is providing an APSC Design Summary (attached below).


As part of Australia's commitment to expand its strategic security training and assistance in the Pacific, the APSC will deliver tailored responses to national and regional security challenges.

The goal of the College will be to strengthen regional security cooperation in the Pacific and increase the region's capacity to manage shared security threats. The purpose of the College will be to deliver and coordinate senior executive and middle management security and law enforcement training to Pacific Islands Countries and regional organisations.

The College will have a flexible footprint, developing and delivering bilateral and regional training across Pacific countries and agencies. The College will also support delivery of security and law enforcement training by DFAT, other Australian government agencies and close partners – under the College banner. Developing and maintaining an active alumni network will be critical to the success of the College.
