A new traineeship program by Microsoft Australia in partnership with the State Government will help create a pipeline of IT talent, and kickstart careers in the technology industry
The Microsoft Traineeship Program, which launched in NSW in late 2018, will expand to South Australia in September 2019 and will help build workforce capability in Information Technology and cloud computing, and increase IT traineeships.
The State Government has provided almost $200,000 in funding for the program which will provide about 40 people with two-year traineeships that combine on-the-job, paid work experience with a Certificate IV in Information Technology and a Microsoft Azure Certification delivered through TAFE SA.
Participants do not need a degree or any previous work experience, as they will be provided with training as well as being employed by MEGT. Host businesses in the Microsoft Partner Network, in metro and regional areas will provide the participants with on-the-job work and experience.
