Dairy Australia is currently recruiting participants for the annual South East Asian Scholarship Program which will be held in February 2019. This will be the fifth time the highly successful program has been staged and it will again be supported by the State Government of Victoria.
The program will run over two weeks from the 10th to the 22nd of February 2019. A key theme of the program will be the Australian Dairy Food Safety system.
The aim is to promote the high quality and safety of dairy food products and enhance the confidence the markets have in Australian dairy. The program will combine theoretical sessions with practical exposure through visits to dairy farms and manufacturing facilities.
For the 2019 program participants will be recruited from Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, and South Korea. Additional participation may be drawn from Myanmar, Brunei, Laos and Cambodia.
The program will be conducted entirely in English and for this reason, it is essential that participants are fluent in speaking, understanding and reading English. This is a mandatory requirement for participation in the program.
Participants should be engaged in a dairy/food industry related role involving one or more of the following functions:
- Quality assurance
- Purchasing/procurement of dairy ingredients
- Manufacturing of food products using imported dairy ingredients
- Marketing and distribution of imported dairy products
- Regulatory compliance
Candidates will ideally currently hold a middle management level role and will have been identified within their company as having strong potential to progress to a senior management role during their career.
The participants’ company will be required to provide the airfare to and from Australia, but once in Australia, almost all costs will be covered by the Scholarship Program, including accommodation, meals, transport and all materials.
If you are interested in applying or nominating someone from your organisation, please contact Stewart Davey at Dairy Australia for more information and an Expression of Interest form.
