The objective of the Digital Skills Cadetship trial is to increase the number of Australians with high level digital skills by trialling new ways of delivering digital skills training in a more flexible and timely manner. The trial will be driven by employer demand for skills in emerging and priority digital fields.
Each cadetship is expected to take between four to six months and comprise:
- formal training
- on-the-job learning through an employer-sponsored work placement
- mentoring arrangements for cadets.
Government will support costs involved in identifying skills needs, developing training programs and materials, delivery of training, and mentoring support. Host employers will be responsible for employment related costs (e.g. salary).
The trial will generate valuable insights into approaches to strengthen connections between employers and education and training providers, and identify opportunities to enhance Australia’s national education and training system.
An industry briefing will take place on 9 September 2021.
