We are very excited to announce Amazon Web Services Australia (AWSA) as a funding partner of The Helmsman Project. AWSA is the world's most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform, offering over 175 services to millions of customers across the world including startups, large enterprises, and leading government agencies.
Karl Durrance, Head of Enterprise for Amazon Web Services in Australia and New Zealand believes programs like The Helmsman Project can help to bridge the technology skills gap, with an extra 200,000 skilled IT workers needed in the next five years. Karl stated:
“We are committed to working with industry, government, and educational institutions to not only re-skill IT professionals, but to cultivate the next generation of cloud builders. Our support of The Helmsman Project is one example of how AWS is building innovative programs to help everyone from underserved and disconnected groups, have the resources and skills they need to build a bright future.”
Thanks to AWSA for sponsoring our program to provide life-changing experiences to young people!
