Cyber Security Microsoft Traineeship Program


Your key to an exciting IT career

By 2024, it’s predicted that 7,000 new cyber security roles will exist, due to the increasingly sophisticated threat of cyber attacks to businesses, governments and individuals alike.

This is only a portion of the growing demand for IT roles more broadly.

If you are looking for a rewarding career in IT and cyber security, the new Cyber Security Microsoft Traineeship Program could be for you.

It will equip you for rewarding roles such as junior software developer, systems engineer, cyber security specialist or cyber crime analyst, and prepare the way if you decide on further study and more senior roles.

What are the program details?

The two-year traineeship is run in collaboration with Microsoft, AustCyber, Prodigy Learning and TAFE NSW. This program is currently available in ACT and NSW. 

Combining paid, on-the-job experience and supervision with formal training, you’ll progress from a basic knowledge of IT and cyber security concepts to the development of practical skills in both areas.

You will spend four days per week working in the industry, and the fifth pursuing a Certificate IV in Cyber Security from TAFE NSW, and the latest Microsoft and ITS certifications from Prodigy Learning.
