Lumify Group, the leading provider of Information, Communications and Technology (ICT) training in Australasia, has today announced the launch of Lumify Learn (RTO no. 45994). Lumify Learn provides quality, self-paced, vendor-certified and nationally accredited ICT training, leveraging 30 years of experience, skills and knowledge accumulated by the wider Lumify Group as industry leaders.
Bringing a unique offering of nationally accredited qualifications with built-in vendor-certified content (in partnership with the likes of Microsoft, AWS and CompTIA), Lumify Learn tackles the growing problem of skills shortages in Australia’s technology sector. With a recent government-backed survey revealing IT university graduates were the least employable out of 10 sectors surveyed, and nearly one in five IT graduates feel their degree has failed to prepare them for the working world, Lumify Learn’s courses offer students the opportunity to graduate with a vendor-certified qualification and a nationally accredited qualification. This leads to stronger employment outcomes and enables students to secure the right balance of foundational IT skills and the specific vendor-certified competencies that organisations are suffering a shortage of most.
With all courses delivered 100% online, Lumify Learn allows students to study their way, from anywhere, at any time. All students are supported by a team of Australian-based ICT experts currently working in industry, who are available to guide students through the course material. Additional to nationally accredited and vendor-aligned courses, Lumify Learn also offers a series of tailored bootcamps in high-demand skillsets, including Cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence and Data Science, that take students with zero industry experience to employable professionals in as little as 6 months.
Lumify Learn courses are designed for both beginners looking to make an entry into the ICT industry and those looking to advance their careers, and require limited prior knowledge or experience. The business has also announced the launch of its industry-leading program, Lumify Edge, that provides dedicated support and careers advice to help graduates land their first role in the ICT industry. The program also assists Australian tech companies tackle skills shortages by providing them with a fresh source of qualified, industry-ready candidates.
“Just as much as graduates need core foundational skills in the basics of IT, they also need specific vendor-certified competencies in the systems that organisations are using on a daily basis. Increasingly, we are seeing ICT training providers fail to deliver in both of these areas, resulting in graduates with poor employment outcomes and skills shortages that aren’t addressed. Furthermore, the rigid academic structures of traditional TAFE and University courses don’t offer the flexibility that many students need to take the first step into an ICT career. We have launched Lumify Learn to fix this problem, and get qualified, competent IT professionals into the market in a timely fashion, ” said Jon Lang, CEO of Lumify Group.
Lumify Learn is part of the wider Lumify Group, which trains over 30,000 students per year with campuses across Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines. Lumify Group also includes Lumify Work, which provides training for government and enterprise customers; Lumify People, a strategic and advisory services provider; and Nexacu, the leading provider of instructor-led Microsoft app training for end-users across APAC. Together, the four business units provide extensive training options tailored to both organisations’ and individuals’ needs – from vendor-certified courses to customised training, including bespoke in-house developed courses.
