Asia Education Foundation

School Business Partnerships


Asia skills and knowledge are essential for young people to maximise their life and career choices.

History in the Australian Curriculum

Schools, businesses and communities work together to:

  • maximise life opportunities

We have a shared interest in enhancing outcomes for our young people.

  • enhance career success

Employers are seeking future workers who can engage with people in and from the diverse countries of Asia.

  • create a harmonious and prosperous Australia

Together, we can build global communities that can collaborate to resolve common issues. 

Asia Education Foundation's School Business Partnerships project connects Asia Literacy Ambassadors, businesses and community organisations with schools. It showcases Asia skills in action and supports young people in their journey towards Asia literacy.
