The shortage of cyber security skills in NSW is acute and is affecting Government institutions and industry. Working with TAFEs and universities the NSW Cyber Security Innovation Node will help ensure the state is producing graduates who can address industry-defined skills gaps.
The NSW Cyber Security Innovation Node workforce development program is developing a cyber security talent pipeline in NSW. It offers support for schools in the form of:
- Additional teaching support and resources tailored to individual schools
- A ‘cyber ambassador’ program to connect cyber security professionals and early-career graduates with high school students
So, if your school needs extra help with teaching cyber/STEM subjects, or if you think you, or someone you know, will be a great ambassador for cyber careers, please apply!
