New traineeship program to boost digital employment opportunities and diversity

The APS Digital Traineeship Program will create employment opportunities for First Nations people, women, older people, veterans transitioning to civilian roles and their spouses, with 1,000 participants over the next 4 years.

The Australian Government initiative was a key outcome from the Jobs and Skills Summit on 2 September 2022.

The new initiative will support people starting their career, moving between careers or re‑entering the workforce into digital roles. It will provide employment opportunities to establish a digital career in the APS with a focus on attracting people from under-represented groups.
