Human Resource Development and Leadership

The Tetra Tech team facilitates scholarship programs across Asia on behalf of the Australian Government. Professional development scholarships offer the next generation of global leaders an opportunity to study and research in Australia, providing graduates with the skills they need to create positive change in their home country.

Working with in-country organisations, Tetra Tech facilitates the resources and training required to meet each organisation’s goals for human resource development, both at a capability and capacity level. As developing nations experience rapid transitions to market economies, education and training systems often fall behind, leaving a lack of human resources to facilitate economic growth, as well as skills and knowledge gaps in the region.

We assess organisation and human resource capacity to address skills and knowledge gaps through targeted organisation and human resource development, and we help education systems deliver lasting improvements in governance, quality of teaching and learning and strengthened links between education and employment.

We design and manage the delivery of technical and vocational education and training programmes linked to industry and sector demands and underpinned by effective workforce development policy, planning and research. We develop nationally accredited competency-based systems frameworks informed by labour market analysis and skills mapping and assessment. We liaise with industry and other partners to create employment pathways and deliver employability skills that lead to job placement.

We work on large multi-sector programs that aim to improve social development outcomes through a multi-pronged approach. Education gains are intricately linked and dependent on health, livelihoods, and the complex web of socioeconomic factors that drive individual and collective decisions. Our workforce development programs also deliver breakthrough strategies on gender equality and social inclusion initiatives.

For Australia, these scholarship programs build an engaged and influential global network of leaders and change-makers, while establishing a network of positive contacts around the world.
