Information Technology

10 CERTIFICATE IV IN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY students will travel to Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste to be exposed to issues related to effectively delivering educational sessions to communities in developing countries.


This will be an immersive experience that will extend their communication skills, provide opportunities to volunteer their technical problem-solving skills, and better understand the challenges faced by economically-challenged mobile device users. This Pacific island provides the ideal location to increase students' understanding of Asia and the Pacific and provides a fertile opportunity for students to explore ways by which Australia can better collaborate with its neighbours to improve their standards of living. Students will deliver educational sessions at the National University Timor and local high schools to educate students on safety practices, software and other measures to safeguard students' identities and mobile devices (smart phones, laptops and tablets).

A language grant is also available to successful students in this program. Language courses are often held one night a week for approximately 4 - 6 weeks.

For more information regarding this opportunity, please contact Fiona Dace-Lynn on 6207 3741 or
