Digital Careers is an Australian government backed, independent program aimed at positively engaging students, parents and teachers in digital technology. We want these groups to consider and support careers in digital technology in order to future-proof Australia’s workforce. We do this by:
• Articulating the full breadth of the digital technology Industry and the opportunities it offers both for users and creators of technology
• Collaborating with our partners to deliver fun, experiential activities for yrs3-12 students that create positive engagement with digital technology
• Enabling teachers to deliver attractive technology curricula, through training courses, webinars and conferences
