Partnership to Build Australia’s Technology Talent

Australia Technology Talent

The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) is teaming up with an Australian telecommunications company to develop the skills and capabilities students will need for the future workforce.

According to a recent press release, the demand for talents studying network, software engineering, cybersecurity or data analytics is at an all-time high.

In fact, in the next 5 years, Australia is expected to have a shortfall of 60,000 information and communication technology (ICT) workers.

This leaves the country vulnerable to tackling some of the biggest issues disrupting society.

The Partnership

  • The University and one of the country’s biggest employers are committed to addressing the looming skills shortage.
  • This will be done through placements and work-integrated experiences, research and innovation opportunities, and more development including early access to career opportunities.
  • The company’s Chief Executive Officer shared that this partnership will help build Australia’s technology talent and close the gap between the supply and demand of highly-skilled professionals.
  • According to him, he saw how technology has changed the workplace. Some roles evolve while others disappear entirely.
  • Being confronted with the realities of a workforce that is changing faster than ever before, they must think hard about the talent pipeline for the current and future business needs.
  • The University’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor & Vice-President (Innovation & Enterprise) shared that the partnership will bring the company’s expertise into the campus and classrooms via industry challenges and guest lectures.
  • The partnership will enhance the employability of the students and provide a strong pipeline of potential talent for the company as well as the broader tech community.
  • It will support the upskilling and reskilling of their existing workforce.
  • It aims to support community and social development initiatives to attract increasingly diverse talent interested in technology and provide them with career pathways and study options.
  • As a leading technology university with partnerships embedded throughout the 2027 strategy, this exemplifies how the university strives to enhance student graduate attributes through personal and industry-based learning experiences.
  • The students will learn skills they will use for a lifetime, to the benefit of the Australian workforce and the university’s partners.
  • This partnership provides an opportunity to support greater diversity in all its forms as they look to the future.
  • The technology industry is a male-dominated space, but they are committed to ensuring the pipeline of future talent is diverse from its beginning.
  • To do this, the partnerships will look at ways to build curiosity in technology careers and engage a broad range of people before they reach university, including high school student outreach programs.
  • The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) will remain in place for at least two years.
