The digital apprenticeship model offers business and education best-practice.
The apprenticeship offers relevant and practical learning with the guidance of engineers and technicians that form a career-long professional network.
Top-tier companies are seeking out a new class of specialists to feature in their digital transformation. As designs transition to programming and data rich models, digital engineers are the innovators of this space.
A number of Australian businesses, including SA Power Networks, are gearing up to host their first round of digital engineering apprentices in 2021 to support their engineering teams.
Guided by SAGE Group engineers and technicians, students work with industry-leading technology and gain real-time experience in workplace problem solving for their host partners.
A range of practical assessment tools are used to track learning that can be contextualised to add value to placement workplaces and ensure relevance to apprentice’s future roles.
Course modules create future-readiness for apprentices while also aligning with the demand for enterprise system innovation and Industry 4.0 skills.
It's taking the engineering data and making it integrated. It's something that all the big consultants, all the big oil and gas companies, are needing. Data is becoming more and more valuable. And if you can understand how to structure that data, so that it can be used in machine learning, if you can understand and apply new technology as it's available, I think you have huge opportunities.
This new wave of digital specialists will provide a vital boost to the capabilities of Australian industry. Graduates of the digital apprenticeship will have the combination of experience, skills and industry-recognised qualification to advance an exciting career.
MAINTAIN COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE AND PROFITABILITY
