Scope Global works in partnership with local stakeholders to deliver programs that support economic growth through building people’s skills for employment.

We identify skills gaps and then customise training opportunities. Our approach includes skills training, combined with business coaching and market access. From the tourism to construction sectors, we develop targeted initiatives that work directly with local businesses across entire industry value chains.

Importantly, our focus in delivering skills programs is to support inclusive growth through equitable access to skills and business development opportunities for people with disabilities, women and those who are geographically isolated.
