Scope Global commenced as the Support Contractor for the Vanuatu Skills Partnership in October 2017. The Vanuatu Skills Partnership is a dynamic co-investment between the Governments of Australia and Vanuatu for the continued development of the national skills system, in line with Vanuatu 2030 – The People’s Plan.
The Partnership aims to:
- Improve the quality of local training delivery to better deliver the skills required for inclusive and sustainable private sector growth
- Facilitate the recognition of these skills within the system and in the region for increased education pathways and labour mobility.
The Partnership is not a ‘stand-alone’ aid program determined by outsiders; it is a locally led reform initiative with a deep respect for Melanesian leadership, culture and values. It works within local structures and supports agents for positive change in Vanuatu. The approach recognises the skills sector can contribute not only to economic outcomes but also to beneficial social and environmental outcomes.
Scope Global’s role is to ensure the Partnership has customised, responsive program management support that is focused on integration into Government of Vanuatu systems. Scope Global is responsible for ensuring the Partnership has all the mechanisms in place to facilitate activities and progress towards end-of-program outcomes in a way that enables flexibility, innovation and experimentation.
