Information and Digital Technology


Board Developed VET Course (ATAR)


This course enables pathways into the information and digital technology industry.

The information and communications technology (ICT) industry is a complex and comprehensive industry, including technical support providers, multimedia and web development specialists, desktop publishers, graphic designers, programmers and help desk operators. It is an important contributor to business activities across all industries within the economy.

Workforce development needs in the ICT industry are driven by factors including innovation, the business cycle, digital software and applications, and the Australian Government’s digital economy strategy.

A skilled workforce is needed to manage risks associated with network and information security and secure storage of personal information, addressing the wide divergence of skills needed to meet workplace requirements and adopting safe and ethical ICT practices1.
