Rare Trades, once taught by master to apprentice, are hand skills of olde, used to make functional, useful, beautiful things that last.

ISSI: International Specialist Skills Institute

The International Specialized Skills Institute is a non-profit organisation that provides overseas Fellowships for Australians to increase their knowledge and skills across a variety of industries and traditional trades. This knowledge is dispersed through reports and passed onto industry leaders and institutions to create a better skilled Australia. 
Founded over 25 years ago by Sir James Gobbo AC CVO QC, former Governor of Victoria, the ISS Institute has always held a deep interest in fostering the continued practice of lost and rare artisan trades through international research Fellowships. 

If you would like to enquire further about applying for a Fellowship, or to read published ISS Institute Fellowship reports on lost and rare trades, please contact:
