The goal of Tonga Skills is equitable access to quality based and demand driven skills development that contributes to sustainable economic growth in Tonga. 

It supports systemic change in Tonga’s technical and vocational education and training sector and facilitates inclusive economic growth through targeted skills development activities.

Tonga Skills works with the Government of Tonga and the private sector to better match skills supply to skills demand, to support improved planning, to identify and address barriers to participation in skills development, and to strengthen local training provision, particularly to Tongans who may be disadvantaged by gender, disability or geographic location.

Scope Global manages and implements Tonga Skills on behalf of the Australian Government.
