Asuria, and coding education specialists, Junior Engineers, have been making headlines across Australia, with news of an exclusive partnership to make cyber security qualifications available for job seekers eligible for employment programs including Transition to Work, jobactive, ParentsNext and Disability Employment Services.
News outlets including 7News, The Canberra Times, The West Australian and numerous others have all been sharing the news, helping countless people across Australia with an interest in cyber security, but without a relevant university degree, to learn more about how they can pursue jobs and careers in this exciting sector.
The new program will be delivered as a traineeship which allows participants to gain a nationally recognised qualification by combining employment and training. Participants will be placed with employers, where they will be paid for receiving real-world experience and training in areas such as cyber security risk management and incident response.
Asuria’s training arm, Australian Employment and Training Solutions (AETS), and Junior Engineers will create the specially tailored traineeships, with the goal of filling thousands of roles which don’t require workers to have a university degree.
Con Kittos, CEO and Chairman of Asuria, adds: “Thanks to the government’s range of employment programs, together Asuria and Junior Engineers will be able to directly address the cyber security skills shortage, fast-tracking suitable candidates into ready and waiting roles, while giving Australians the opportunity to embark on exciting new careers by gaining skills that will last them a lifetime.”
Adam Jacobs, Managing Director of the EdTech Group and Junior Engineers, adds: “This exciting joint venture will not only directly influence employment outcomes for school leavers, job seekers, job changers and people with disabilities, it also supports the Australian Government’s vision to create a more secure online world for Australian businesses, their employees and the essential services upon which we all depend.”
With the new programs expected to be available for registrations from early 2022, people interested in enrolling can contact Asuria or Junior Engineers for more details.
