Ai Group has received funding from the Victorian Government to generate interest in traineeships in the ICT sector. This is a sector that generally employs university graduates, although many of the occupations do not require that level of qualification.
Ai Group will work with a training provider to develop and conduct a preparatory program for prospective trainees, and then help place successful completers in Certificate IV traineeship programs. A mentor will support the trainees throughout the process, and there will be professional development support for their supervisors as well.
Who is involved?
Ai Group will manage the program by recruiting apprentices and coordinating employers and training providers in the process. The program will enable employers to train future IT employees to meet the increasing skill needs in the knowledge economy.
