Growing Australia’s digital workforce

Exemplar: generation australia and accenture

Improving training delivery

Education to employment provider Generation Australia (GA) is providing unemployed and underemployed Australians with the opportunity to reskill into in-demand tech jobs and connect them with employers seeking this talent.

At the same time, their approach is helping to create a more inclusive workforce by accessing diverse talent from across Australia. Over half of the learners in GA’s programs have dependents, 84 percent are from a CALD background (culturally and linguistically diverse), and 56 percent are women.

Accenture has been a strong supporter of GA’s approach and initially provided GA with pro-bono support to co-design a cloud computing program that would produce job-ready graduates trained in technical and behavioural skills.

The firm hired its first four graduates from the cloud program into technology architecture delivery and graduate analyst roles. Inspired by the success, Accenture followed on with support to co-design a salesforce development program.

As the partnership evolved, Accenture invited 20 GA learners into its Technology Bootcamp program in 2022, and established its first ever job advert exclusively for GA graduates. In total 35 GA graduates have been offered roles at Accenture.

“This partnership provides a fast-tracked pathway into in-demand, career-launching jobs for those who may be facing barriers to employment. It illustrates the way employers need to change their approach to hiring new talent.

“Those fully committed to new ways of recruiting and who are prepared to adjust their policies and processes are winning the talent war. We now source over 20% of Accenture’s graduate technology roles.”
