The Australia-Indonesia BRIDGE Project supports the development of intercultural understanding and ICT skills to build capacity in participating schools. Since the Project's inception in 2008, 96 Australia-Indonesia school partnerships have been established with over 380 teachers directly involved. The Australia-Indonesia BRIDGE Project supports a number of Australian Government built Indonesian schools to improve teacher capacity and access to technology.
Australian schools are able to apply to be part of the Australia–Indonesia BRIDGE Project through a national application process held annually (during term 3) and advertised on AEF e-News. Successful Australian schools will participate in the professional learning program the following year. Indonesian schools are selected through partnerships developed with provincial education authorities managed by the Australian Embassy in Jakarta. For further information on the professional learning program visit About BRIDGE.
