Boosting IT industry capability

Up to 40 traineeships will be delivered in an innovative project with national IT services business DXC Technology (DXC).

The $214,000 Skilling South Australia project will boost IT industry capability and its workforce flexibility.

The two stage Associate Professional IT career pathway will offer 20 students a Certificate IV in Information Technology at TAFE SA with practical work experience at DXC’s new Digital Transformation Centre.

Students who successfully complete the Certificate IV can continue on to a two-year Diploma traineeship at the Adelaide Computer Support and Service Centre.

This model of learning has been developed in partnership with the IT sector, which has traditionally avoided vocational education and training. Participants will gain:

  • workplace experience

  • paid learning

  • mentoring and connection into a network of industry contacts

  • skilled careers through a higher-level traineeship as an IT professional.
