We can help place you in a cyber security traineeship

There is a Certificate IV in Cyber Security starting at Blacktown TAFE on 14 October 2019. There are no formal entry requirements. There should be no course fees if you are doing a traineeship. Your future can start this year. Contact Sarah Hibbert at Apprenticeship Support Australia on 1300 363 831. The course is specifically designed to develop the skills and knowledge required for a career in cyber security at the para-professional level. Cyber security professionals detect breaches in computer networks and system security. Cyber security is not just the realm of the IT department. Workers with diverse skills are required. There is a cyber security skills shortage, so there are jobs. Do it now.

Which school subjects should you choose?

These flyers are suitable for both school-based apprenticeships or post-school apprenticeships. Each flyer sets out a possible career path for the student and then suggests the elective subjects that will make that career path possible. The subject lists cover choices in years 9 & 10 and 11 & 12. The flyers are designed to make sourcing information easy for careers advisers too. Each flyer features a strong, identifiable image that indicates each type of apprenticeship. Laid out side by side, comparisons between subject choices are simple.

If you’re interested in the same sort of flyers for the Construction, Plumbing, Signs & Graphics, Painting & Decorating and Fire Sprinkler Fitting industry sectors, you’ll find them at the Apprenticeship Engagement Forum website
