For parents

Your children have never known a world without technology: they are constantly connected, can have any question answered instantaneously and have never heard the screech of an internet 'dial up' tone.

While in the past, a career in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) might have meant pulling apart a colleague's hard drive and putting it back together, the current opportunities for students in digital careers are infinite. Digital careers are no longer restricted to working on the service desk or writing code. As a key driver in their future lives and careers, you have the opportunity to encourage your children to develop entirely new technologies, discover ways to improve lives, and to make what currently seems impossible, a reality.

Careers in app development, driverless car engineering, drone operation and social media management didn't exist 10 years ago, and the list of new, ground-breaking digital careers is only set to grow further.

In addition to leading the world in digital discoveries, Australian students have the potential to be part of a future career that is exciting, diverse, personally fulfilling and financially rewarding. It all starts at home with your guidance and encouragement.

Head to our Events page to see what activities your child can get involved in or explore our Careers Hub for more information.
