The DSO is working to ensure Australia has a highly skilled, resilient and adaptable digital workforce that is responsive and demand-driven to the needs of employers and industry.
On this page:
Work is based on the need to deliver skilled workers to meet the evolving demands of Australian industry and the broader economy. The DSO will conduct its activities through five delivery and supporting programs, including a qualification design trial.
Qualification design trial
The qualification design trial is focused on reconceptualising and designing qualifications ‘from the ground up’ to address the evolving skills needs of employers and individuals within the digital sector.
The DSO and the Australian Government are co-designing a qualification design trial based on current and future core skills and job roles.
Delivery program one
This project focuses on the development of a new, employer-led skills assessment model to ensure digital skills standards are relevant to the needs of current and future employment demands. Evaluation, reporting and lessons learnt will guide the development of a future operational model.
Delivery program two
The Digital Career Pathway project focuses on simplifying and integrating digital pathways to make digital careers more accessible. In collaboration with key stakeholders, the DSO will seek to understand and reduce complexities and barriers in this area. Evaluation, reporting and lessons learnt will guide the development of a future operational model.
Delivery program three
This project focuses on driving the engagement of active industry leaders to create a coherent community of stakeholders and build strong strategic partnerships with key organisations.
