Applications for the 2013 ICT Apprenticeship and Cadetship Programs are open now!
The ICT Apprenticeship and Cadetship Programs are annual recruitment initiatives aimed at increasing the number of permanent ICT employees in the Australian Government. They provide an exciting opportunity for people who are interested in beginning a career in ICT to learn technical skills and theories, as well as gain a formal qualification and valuable workplace experience.
The ICT Apprenticeship Program is for people with little to no formal ICT experience. ICT Apprentices (APS1) work full-time in an ICT related area of an Australian Government agency and study part-time to attain a Certificate III, Certificate IV or Diploma in ICT. Their qualification is paid for by their agency and they receive paid study leave to attend classes.
The ICT Cadetship Program is for University students who are currently studying an undergraduate ICT degree. ICT Cadets (APS2) work part-time in an ICT related area of an Australian Government agency until they complete their degree. They also receive a generous study allowance to support their University costs.
Applications for the 2013 programs are open now and close at 11:30pm on Friday, 10 August 2012. Positions are available in Canberra, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide. To apply go to https://finance.nga.net.au.
