This evening 25 ICT Cadets and Apprentices celebrated their graduation from the Australian Government ICT Entry level program. These Apprentices and Cadets have now gained their ICT qualification after spending the last 18 months to three years working in an Australian Government agency while also studying.

The ICT Cadetship Program targets current University students who have completed their first year (or full-time equivalent) of an undergraduate degree in ICT, or an undergraduate degree with an ICT major. Cadets work a minimum of two days per week within an Australian Government agency, with the remainder of the week being dedicated towards finishing their University study. The ICT Apprenticeship Program targets students who are currently completing their Year 12 Certificate, and people with a passion for ICT who are looking for a new and exciting career change. Apprentices work the equivalent of four days per week within an Australian Government agency, while completing a Certificate IV or Diploma in either information technology, networking, programming, software development or systems analysis and design. The Cadets and Apprentices are based throughout Australia and came together tonight, with family and friends, to receive their graduation certificate. The graduating Cadets and Apprentices will now continue their ICT career, contributing their skills and experience across the Australian Public Service. Applications for ICT Cadets and Apprentices for 2012 are now open. If you are considering a career in ICT in the Australian Government please visit www.australia.gov.au/ictentrylevel or call 02 6215 2889.
