Australian School of Pacific Administration

Australian School of Pacific Administration (ASOPA) was established in Sydney, New South Wales, in 1947, to provide training courses for Australians who had been selected to join the Australian Administration in Papua New Guinea, and in-service courses for those already employed. These courses were meant to familiarize prospective administrative officers with the history, institutions and culture of PNG and Australia’s colonial policy, and to provide further training for those who had completed an initial period of service in PNG. After 1969 PNGans participated in ASOPA courses.
