10 CERTIFICATE IV IN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY students will travel to Singapore 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. Singapore is currently a world leader in cybersecurity. Work integrated learning opportunities will be made available to students at Republic and Temasek polytechnic in partnerships with cybersecurity companies. The Singapore technical skills development sector have implemented real life security operations centres and cyber ranges, which do not exist in Australia currently.
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.
