Calling for technology apprenticeships in Australia.

The Australian technology industry faces a growing skills shortage. We have started discussions with the Australian government to introduce a national apprenticeship scheme for technology - for school leavers or those changing careers.

We’ve had success with a technology apprenticeship scheme in the UK. Not everyone can or wants to go to university and many don’t need to.

Iress has teamed up with Catapult, MYOB, REA Group, SEEK and Slack to progress this. If you're interested in hearing more and getting on board, please get in touch below.
