Andrew, 2016 Graduate

“I consider myself very fortunate to have been accepted into the IT Graduate Program. Through the program I have gained access to some great professional development opportunities and a position in the Information and Technologies Branch (ITB) of the Department of Education and Training. Whilst in ITB I have been involved in constructing vendor agreements, putting together governance compliance packages, project managing the delivery of web based solutions, and using metrics and analytics to gain a better understanding of cost-benefit relationships in ICT educational environment.  The IT Graduate Program is a great way of getting to know government and the IT sector.”
