In Australia, the Digital Future Initiative was given a boost with the announcement of 10,000 scholarships for Google’s Career Certificate program focused on women and First Nations Australians. Using Cloud skills programs plus Google Career Certificates, the program is designed to lead to improved employment opportunities. A consortium of Australia’s leading employers that includes Australia Post, Woolworths Group, Canva, Optus and IAG is partnering on this project and planning to hire course graduates. Brooke Hayne, People Director at Woolworths, noted: “We’re incredibly excited by the potential for Google’s Career Certificates to unearth great talent by fast-tracking their path to a career change or that first job that helps them get their foot in the door.”
From our partners:
As the demand for digital skills increases, we’re pleased to continue to develop new initiatives with governments and educational institutions, with the shared goal of preparing for the digital economy of the future.
