WHAT WE DO
The profits from our recruitment services fund our accelerated Software test, Coding and Enterprise Skills boot camp. We extract young IT loving geeks from the pool of Australia's 25% of unemployed youth, train and place them into work. For us, graduation is a job - not just a piece of paper.
WHAT WE OFFER
We offer Employers quality Test & Software candidates for hire.
We invite you, the Employer to also partner with us to have your entry-level jobs filled with young Australians trained to your specific requirements.
We will work with you to provide a pool of job-ready IT staff in Test, Front-End development, and technical support to select from.
WHY WE DO IT
• We believe in a debt-free education for youth.
• We believe 'Limitation' is not an impediment to placing youth into IT jobs historically belonging to degree-qualified only. We, therefore, train the ‘least’ in a community; those impacted by poverty, abuse or attitudes of prejudice.
• We accelerate students into the IT job market as by active engagement in the start-up IT community.
• We've seen many real-world insights and varied experiences are required for youth to find the career that best fits their talents, passion, and nature.
• We've seen that frequent opportunities to practice soft skills need to be integral in youth education in order to meet the challenges of the future economy.
For young people who work hard, we create real opportunities to build better lives for yourselves in a transformative technology career.
