Local IT staff in Timor-Leste often miss out on the opportunity to succeed because of a lack of organised professional development in the workplace. Many organisations simply don’t have the necessary local technical capabilities to provide the guidance and mentoring that their IT staff so desperately need.

Consequently, IT staff tend to very rapidly reach a plateau in their skill level, which they find very difficult to overcome. Often they find that their only option to progress their development is to change jobs. In reality, this doesn’t help the individual much at all, and the unnecessary staff turnover comes at a great cost to the employer as well. Our professional development packages can help you to develop your IT workforce and improve morale, while reducing costly and disruptive staff turnover.

Our packages are tailored to your specific needs, and may include:

  • Regular, short practical sessions focusing on a specific topic in small groups of 4-6 people. These groups are formed from multiple organisations, providing an opportunity for participants to compare practical experiences.
  • One-on-one mentoring, with access to technical experts for guidance on resolving difficult issues.
  • Practical take-away study assignments, marked by a technical expert who can provide feedback.

Our professional development services can be included as part of a staff recruitment package, or as a separate service for your existing staff.
