Digital Traineeships

There is a significant shortage of skilled digital professionals in Australia. Recent research indicates 87% of jobs require digital literacy skills, with the higher education sector providing 7,000 IT graduates a year. Australia will need 156,000-300,000 digital technology workers by 2025, representing 1 in 4 jobs created during that period.

1 in 16 working Australians work in tech jobs, and
there are more software engineers and developers in
Australia than solicitors, plumbers, or hairdressers

  • They cover all jobs in companies in the direct tech sector (for example software companies), and online commerce jobs in retail and wholesale trade.
  • These jobs also include tech-related jobs in sectors such as banking, mining, the public sector and professional services. In fact there are more tech jobs outside software companies than in them
