ACS Vic announces Pathways scholarships

The ACS has announced it will sponsor three participants in the program over the next 12 months

The Australian Computer Society’s (ACS) Victorian arm has committed to fostering the careers of three senior ICT managers, sponsoring their participation in the CIO Executive Council’s Pathway’s Program.

The ICT development and leadership program, created by the Executive Council and designed by CIOs, will run for 12 months and focuses on the business and leadership aspects of the CIO position rather than the technical.

The three successful scholarship applicants, announced at the Vic State iAwards, are Adam Smith, Craig Lindley and David Makin.

The ACS based the selection on the applicants past achievements and their potential to make a significant difference in ICT.

The program is now in its second year and has about 90 participants around Australia.

In March, the CIO Executive Council launched ‘Pathways Advanced’ and ‘Pathways Business’, designed in conjunction with Rob Livingstone Advisory.
