Growing Australia’s digital workforce

Exemplar: google career certificates

Improving training delivery

A new program to help Australians develop in demand digital skills and connect them with open job roles, where employers need digital skills the most, was launched by Google.

Google Career Certificates are online courses to help upskill Australians in high growth technology areas. Senior Google experts fully developed the training, offering job-ready skills across IT support, UX design, data analytics, project management and digital marketing/e-commerce.

Through a mix of videos, assessments, hands-on labs and interactive exercises, learners are introduced to topics required for an entry-level job.

Google has built a consortium of Australian employers, including Australia Post, Woolworths Group, Canva, Optus and IAG, who recognise the qualifications and are interested in considering certificate graduates for suitable open roles within their organisations.

The company has also partnered with various community organisations to increase uptake by underrepresented groups in tech, including women and Indigenous Australians.

“Microcredentials mean people can get the skills they need – when they need them. Google’s leadership is critical to building the digital skills workers and businesses need, especially for those who are underrepresented in digital roles.”
