Expo brings together hundreds of career pathways
Personalised and flexible learning for students
TRAINING program manager of Kirra Services Trish Young says in recent years there has been a growing recognition of the need to break down traditional education barriers that have long hindered students from achieving their full potential.
“This is particularly true in rural areas and within indigenous communities,” she says.
“Kirra Services Cyber Career Starter Program seeks to provide students with a more personalised and flexible learning experience, tailored to individual needs and learning styles.”
The program aims to address the shortage of cybersecurity specialists in Australia by facilitating increased participation of indigenous and regional individuals in the information and communications technology and cybersecurity industry, says Trish.
“At Kirra Services, we understand the need for community and the importance of the connections it brings. Part of our aim is to ensure that the needs of community members are kept first in mind,” she says.
“Boasting partnerships with both (ISC)2 and Cisco Networking Academy, the program is backed up with tailored learning support services, mentoring, optional vendor training and an intern program designed to build practical skills within the workplace.
“The program specifically targets regional areas and emphasises the inclusion of Indigenous participants, women and neuro-diverse individuals.
“By providing practical training, career coaching, mentoring and internship programs, the program aims to empower indigenous and regional individuals to pursue successful careers in cybersecurity, contributing to the growth of the industry in Australia.”
