Generation Australia launches web developer program

A web developer program has just been launched by Generation Australia to help connect those made unemployed by COVID-19 to the growing digital job market.

Developed in consultation with large tech employers, the 12-week course — delivered in collaboration with Academy Xi — will teach in-demand skills and guarantee each participant a job interview for a real position upon completion.

Almost 600,000 Australians have lost their job due to COVID-19 restrictions. Meanwhile, demand for skills in the software and applications sector has been forecast to increase by 23% over the next three years.

Generation Australia COO Malcolm Kinns said the industry-designed courses would ensure participants receive the best possible training to meet workplace demand.

“With the input of industry employers including MYOB, XERO, REA and Telstra, Generation Australia has designed and adapted this program specifically to ensure graduates are armed with the skills, knowledge and mindset to be successful in their new careers,” he said.

Since 2015, more than 37,000 individuals have graduated from Generation programs globally, with 79% securing employment within three months.

Generation Australia will continue this momentum, launching a series of new programs for roles in the IT and digital sector throughout 2020.

Applications for the first program — which runs from June to September 2020 — will close on 25 May 2020.
