What we do

We provide education and support to drive transformations that create real development results.

Pre-Service Academy

The Pre-Service Academy serves change agents from a diversity of backgrounds, perspectives, and expertise. At Humanitarian Institute you'll get the tools, mindset, and network to help you forge your aid work career.

The Academy teaches hard and soft skills that empower individuals and teams to search for innovative solutions to the world’s most difficult challenges. Learn from professional humanitarians about the scope and diversity of the aid and development industry and explore career pathways you have to engage in international relief work.

The courses are varied and delivered onsite in capital cities across Australia and New Zealand, plus online.

If you're looking to create solutions to help change the world, we can help you do just that.
