New pathways into tech careers

A new higher apprenticeship pathway for careers in high tech industries is upskilling existing workers in the digital skills needed for Industry 4.0.


Led by Skills Lab, this pilot program will see eight existing workers from six organisations complete the Diploma of Applied Technologies. The participating organisations in the first intake are:


  • Redarc

  • Treasury Wine Estates

  • Philmac

  • Vinpac

  • Sandvik

  • SAGE Automation.


This the first vocational education pathway in the high-tech sectors in the country, and will be delivered with a combination of online, virtual, real-time connection with Skills Lab’s training rigs, and workplace-based training.


As our world becomes increasingly connected, industries will be transformed and driven by digitalisation, and the demand for workers with strong digital technology skills is only going to increase.
