The International Specialised Skills Institute is an independent, not-for-profit, national organisation providing opportunities for Australians to acquire skills and best practice in traditional and heritage trades, the arts, education, and leading-edge technologies through overseas applied research Fellowships.

The Institute was founded in 1991 by Sir James Gobbo, former Governor of Victoria, to encourage investment in the development of Australia’s Specialised skills. In the wake of Sir James Gobbo’s passing, a new Fellowship has been created to uphold his legacy. The Sir James Gobbo Legacy Fellowship supports rare and heritage skills, by assisting candidates who require further training overseas in order to build best practice and to further establish themselves here in Australia.
