The goal of the Tonga Skills for Inclusive Growth Program was to provide equitable access to quality based and demand driven skills development that contributed to sustainable economic growth in Tonga.
The Program concluded on 30th September 2021.
Tonga Skills achieved significant milestones in the last five years including successful focus on disability inclusion, trades training, handicraft manufacturing and TVET teacher training.
Working with the Government of Tonga and the private sector the Program aimed to:
- Better match skills supply and demand.
- Support improved planning, identification and minimisation of barriers to participation.
- Strengthen local training provisions.
The Program particularly focused on Tongans who were disadvantaged by gender, disability or geographic location.
Scope Global managed and implemented Tonga Skills on behalf of the Australian Government. Scope Global would like to thank everyone who has been involved in this Program over the past five years.
