Announcing the launch of the Microsoft Traineeship Program
Microsoft is proud to launch the Microsoft Traineeship Program, which aims to support over 150 people take their first steps into a technology career.
Commencing with a pilot in Sydney in 2019, the Program will combine a Certificate IV in Information Technology and Microsoft Certifications with paid work experience. This combination of knowledge and experience will set students up to embark upon a successful career, as well as help address the technical skills shortage in Australia.
Working with strategic delivery partners MEGT, Prodigy Learning and TAFE NSW — as well as the network of Microsoft partners around the country — Microsoft aims to create a new pipeline of exceptional IT talent.
For Microsoft partners and customers interested in hosting a Microsoft Trainee, this is an opportunity to get access to new and emerging talent from a diverse talent pool.
For aspiring trainees, this program provides an excellent foot-in-the-door to an exciting and rewarding career in IT.
