Growing Australia’s digital workforce

Exemplar: amazon web services (aws)

Improving training delivery

Since 2020, Amazon Web Services (AWS) actively worked with the DSO by participating in a variety of pilots, roundtables, working groups and skills standards workshops.

Australian businesses, including the fastest-growing startups, largest enterprises, and leading government agencies, are using AWS to lower costs, become more agile, and innovate faster. The firm is committed to working with government and industry to drive change and innovation in the way it educates, skills, upskills and employs technical talent across the country.

The work with the DSO, and other peak industry bodies such as the Tech Council of Australia, resulted in AWS designing and launching a digital traineeship model that is both recognised under the Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) and delivers participants with industry certifications.

The combination makes the student highly employable in entry level tech roles. This traineeship is being piloted in 2023 within a VET in a Schools environment and with adult learners.

AWS is committed to hiring VET graduates into entry level roles. It already runs an active traineeship program that employs students undertaking a Diploma Program from Melbourne’s Swinburne University of Technology, and will be looking to expand those opportunities in the future as more VET courses embed cloud technology skills.

“Australia has the opportunity to amplify immense economic benefits from building a strong pipeline of cloud talent to support the country’s ongoing digital transformation.”

The best thing about this program is access to higher education in demanding cloud technology, on the job training with AWS global expert trainers and complete access to AWS resources. If you are passionate about IT, keen to learn and dedicated, this is the best opportunity you can ever get into.”
