INQUIRE ABOUT A COURSE
The ICT industry in Australia is estimated to have generated $85-$98 billion in revenue for the year 2008-2009, to have employed some 268,000 people in 2007-2008 and, as of February 2009, to employ a total of 532,500 ICT workers in all industries across Australia.

ICT employment and occupations fall across all sectors and industries in Australia. Of the total number or people employed in ICT occupations in 2007-2008 (ABS 2008), just over half (54%) actually fell within what can be classified as the ICT industry division.
The Australian ICT industry has become more of a service industry then a specialised IT focused industry with the result that national ICT career pathways are becoming more vertical than horizontal and are requiring the versatility to incorporate a mix of various ICT skills rather than relying on the historically fixed specialist ICT stream career pathway.
To fully encompass these industry-identified changes, ICA11 has incorporated both a horizontal and vertical approach to ICT career pathway progression. The ICA11 qualifications have been developed to enable a specialist outcome in the key ICT areas combined with the flexibility to incorporate a diverse range of skill sets so as to provide a wider career pathway outcome.
The packaging rules for qualifications are clear and consistent and allow a logical progression of skills development between AQF levels. The Training Package allows for multiple entry points and progression pathways enabling a formal learning progression from AQF 1 through to Advanced Diploma and Vocational Graduate Certificate level.
