A new traineeship program by Microsoft Australia in partnership with the State Government will create job and traineeship opportunities in information technology and cloud computing, and help to kickstart careers in the industry.
The Microsoft Traineeship Program will provide up to 40 people with two-year traineeships that combine paid work experience with a Certificate IV in Information Technology and a Microsoft Azure Certification delivered through TAFE SA. The program launched in NSW in late 2018 and will roll out in Adelaide in September.
“IT companies in SA and nationally are experiencing increased demand for information technology roles at the higher skill level and introducing a simple, statewide program for IT businesses to access trainees will encourage longer-term use of this career pathway,” Minister for Innovation and Skills David Pisoni says. “It’s critical for our state’s future economic success that our workforce is suitably skilled to meet industry needs – particularly at a time of unprecedented opportunity in sectors such as space, cyber security and defence.”
