CyberGuru successfully exhibited at the 2018 Queensland Schools VET Conference on Friday 10 August 2018. We met many wonderful teachers looking for solutions in the Information, Digital Media and Technology space.

CyberGuru is proud to support teachers by providing training courses and developing learning materials, delivering professional development and undertaking industry currency. We stand by our products as we write them ourselves, and in doing so aim to fill some of the skills gaps we commonly see in local businesses.

Congratulations to Adrian Tofilau of VeriDoc Global who won our Business Card Draw.

CyberGuru sponsoring 2018 Qld Schools VET Conference

CyberGuru is proud to be an again a sponsor at the 2018 Queensland Schools VET Conference being held at Hilton Brisbane on 10 August 2018.

For many years, CyberGuru has been providing education and training services to Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) and schools, both public and private. These services focussed on developing teachers’ knowledge in the Information, Digital Media and Technology qualifications in Certificate I, III and III through CyberGuru’s professional development, training courses, learning resources and industry currency.

From next year in Queensland, an individual student’s Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) score may be improved by their completion of a Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualification, such as a Certificate III in Information, Digital Media and Technology. Whilst the introduction of the Digital Solutions syllabus may be relevant to some schools and students, the practical nature of VET qualification such as the Information, Digital Media and Technology provides students with on-the-job skills and prepare them for their future careers.

We participated at last year’s Qld Schools VET Conference and over the last twelve months have seen the growth of uptake and interest in the Certificates in Information, Digital Media and Technology.

If you are a teacher, principal or RTO manager, who is looking to provide your students with a career opportunity in Information, Communications and Technology, please contact us for a complementary consultation and review of your training requirements.
