Career Pathways & Information for Students

Career Pathways

Right now, almost half of today’s jobs are set to be impacted by technology. 40% of Australia’s best paid jobs are in ICT – jobs of the future will all involve ICT skills. All industries have been impacted by technology and those workers with ICT skills will be best positioned for the jobs in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

The ICT Careers Wheel for Students is a resource to assist Australian Secondary School students in identifying pathways for study and employment in the technology sector. There are several pathways into the roles within the tech sector, and by grouping job roles with TAFE and University qualifications, the wheel and map communicate the linkage from study to work.

Vocational Pathways

There are nationally recognised pathways for high school students, such as Australian School-based Apprenticeships and Traineeships, or for post-secondary school studies in Information Technology courses at TAFE Qld and other Registered Training Organisations that will help to prepare you for a role within the tech workforce

Creating new opportunities for young Queenslanders is a key part of the ICT GISP, combining study with on-the-job paid employment with a Queensland employer, as part of a nationally recognised Traineeship. The program will commence in 2021 - further details will follow in late 2020.

Higher Education Pathways

The Queensland technology workforce is expected to grow by nearly 3%, equivalent to 13,000 new positions, over the next four years, however, research shows that at the end of 2017 just over 1,000 university graduates were successfully completing their ICT degrees at an Australian University.

Individuals with higher level qualifications, particularly in emerging technology areas, in fields such as data science, quantum computing and cyber security for example, will be in extremely high demand across many organisations and industries.
