Purpose

To build the capability of the engineering sector to contribute to sustainable development through leading the design and delivery of EWB’s suite of training programs.

Summary

EWB has been working with university, industry, and community partners to deliver unique, impactful learning experiences for over a decade. We believe that by equipping current and emerging members of the technical engineering sector with awareness, knowledge, and skills, we will see a fundamental shift in the capacity of the engineering sector to support positive social, environmental, and economic outcomes with communities.

EWB’s Training Programs develop the skills, capabilities, and mindsets of participants so they are better prepared to contribute to a world where technology benefits all. We build on our deep understanding of community development practice and engineering for social value creation, to activate a movement of professionals with the skills to influence systems, contribute to sustainable development, and generate future-ready industries. Our Training Programs support participants to build critically important professional skills – such as dealing with complexity, leadership and cross-cultural competencies – through short-form and immersive learning experiences.

EWB’s Training Programs Manager works closely with and supported by internal program leads and the wider EWB stakeholder network across universities and industry. In this role, you will lead EWB’s training initiatives, which are structured for both university student and professional audiences and in-person and virtual formats.

In 2020, EWB Australia launched a strategy that will guide the organisation through the next 10 years. This strategy and EWB’s approach to technology development has informed EWB’s current suite of training offerings. EWB’s Training Programs Manager will support with ensuring the annual calendar of training programs remains aligned with EWB’s vision, brand, and impact reporting, while also guiding the strategic development of new EWB offerings into the training space.

As EWB’s Training Programs Manager, your work will be a key enabler of learners who are seeking a ‘deep-dive’ with EWB to unlock how they might meaningfully contribute to community outcomes and align with the vision of a world where technology benefits all.

Key responsibilities:

  1. Lead the design and delivery of EWB’s training programs in live and virtual formats.
  2. Inform annual planning of EWB’s existing training offerings and the strategic development of new EWB training offerings, which are responsive to market-needs and leverage EWB strengths.
  3. Lead and grow relationships with the EWB network of facilitators, mentors, and trainers.
  4. Support relationships with university and industry partners to inform the ongoing development, iteration and delivery of new and existing program offerings.
  5. Ensure EWB’s Training Programs are monitored, evaluated, and reports made available to enable agile learning and program evolution.
  6. Ensure EWB’s Training Programs effectively incorporate risk, safety and security procedures in accordance with EWB Australia policies
