Amazon Web Services Workplace Learning Program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students

Career Programs and Aboriginal Education and Communities directorates in collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) has developed an opportunity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to take part in a workplace learning program. This program will strengthen transitions from school into post-school pathways centred on digital careers.

Students will have the opportunity to gain knowledge about the various roles available within the digital technology industry. Students will take part in energising seminars, get ‘hands-on’ building in the Cloud, and develop their career readiness with the help of AWS’s talent and recruitment team. AWS have planned for students to experience real-world examples of cloud technology through the lens of some their most exciting local customers.

Workplace Learning dates: Wednesday 31 July – Friday 2 August

Who can apply? Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in Years 9-11.
