Deputy Premier, the Hon Andrew Stoner Launches NSW National ICT Careers Week
The Hon Andrew Stoner MP, NSW MP Deputy Premier, Minister for Trade and Investment, and Minister for Regional Infrastructure and Services, officially announced the New South Wales launch of National ICT Careers Week at the Australian Computer Society (ACS) stand at the CeBIT annual conference.
Examples of some of the events being organised include the ACS Foundation Student conference being held at UTS on May 28th, the Central Coast Careers event on June 26that Avondale College which 3,000 secondary school students will attend, and the annual ICT careers week event that will be held at the University of Wollongong.
At CeBIT, Minister Stoner said he was pleased to be officially launching the NSW ICT Careers Week. “The NSW Government supports initiatives such as National ICT Careers Week which encourage young people to enter into a career in ICT - one of Australia’s fastest growing industries. The recently released NSW ICT Strategy highlights the need to foster a workforce with sufficient technology skills, delivering vital digital services to sustain and grow the NSW economy,” said Minister Stoner.
Penny Coulter, Chair of the Careers Week Steering Committee said, “ICT careers are rewarding and dynamic. There are a diverse range of options in areas of study leading to a wide range of careers in NSW, across the country and internationally. The events held in NSW during ICT Careers Week aim to demonstrate the possibilities and opportunities to young people.”
John Ridge AM, Executive Director of the ACS Foundation, added: “The ACS Foundation supports promoting careers in ICT to secondary school students, and getting career information to the students and their influencers. It is more about trying to address some of the systemic obstacles students who are passionate about ICT and technology currently face, rather than artificially turning students onto a career in ICT.”
