Spearheaded by industry, the Digital Engineering Higher Apprenticeship program seeks out passionate, technically minded school leavers to partner with top tier businesses in a 3-year paid-to-learn training model.
The first-of-a-kind apprenticeship has been developed at the direct request of business leaders to produce the digital specialists they want on their teams.
The apprenticeship model provides an immediate skills resource for employers and industry maturity for students in a win-win response to the fourth industrial revolution. Apprentices will gain a nationally accredited Diploma of Applied Technologies while adding immediate value to their organization.
This program is eligible for the Boosting Apprenticeships wage subsidy of 50%, up to a maximum of $28,000 for the first year.
The nationally accredited Diploma of Applied Technologies is delivered to eligible students under a “Fee Free” contract of training to all new workers through Smart and Skilled funding with Training Services NSW.
