A strong ICT workforce is vital for Australia's future
Skilled people are the most important component of the ICT industry as they provide the genesis, implementation, and support for the technologies delivered by the ICT industry.
ICT skills also play an increasingly vital role in almost all occupations, and contribute to productivity gains, innovation and job growth across all Australian industries.
However, Australia is facing a widening gap between the demand for ICT skills and the supply of qualified ICT workers.
This means that the continued productivity dividend by ICT to the Australian economy will be jeopardised if Australia does not have sufficient people with ICT skills joining the Australian workforce.
