Industry leaders have teamed up with Skills Lab to launch Australia’s first digital engineering apprenticeship as a firm pathway to an in-demand career

The Digital Engineering Apprenticeship program seeks out passionate, technically minded school leavers to partner with top-tier businesses in a 3-year paid-to-learn training model. The first-of-kind apprenticeship has been spearheaded by SA Power Networks and developed at the direct request of business leaders from across the engineering community to produce the digital specialists they want on their teams. Higher Apprentices meet the digital needs of businesses and gain real-world project experience while earning an industry recognised qualification in a partnership giving rise to a new class of para-professional.

Enter the ‘new collar’ worker. Enter the Digital Apprentice. Applications close 20th November 2020. The apprenticeship is indentured and the Commonwealth Boosting Apprenticeship Wage subsidy will apply.
