BSD’s Connect2Work course is a career-related programme designed to train students in real world, transferable, digital and 21st century skills making them employment and career ready. It is now, more than ever, crucial to prepare students to enter a digital workplace with a portfolio of technical and soft skills. Not only is almost every industry transforming, digital talent is unable to keep up.
In collaboration with employers, BSD has identified core skill areas that align with needs across industries and careers. Digital skills are integral to all jobs and industries. In this program, students apply skills within a range of industry themes and job activities.
In this two-year program, students will develop digital skills that will enable them to be prepared for success in their future careers. We will be covering topics in (digital) design, programming, data analysis and organization, as well as digital marketing.
Students will apply skills within a range of industry themes and job activities to expand their understanding and opportunities of where their own greatest interests lie related to the world of work.
The program comprises 240 hours of taught learning (80% weight of final grade) along with 150 hours of Applied Components (AC) (20% weight of final grade). Each year, students will further develop their skills and conceptual understanding through the taught learning courses. Each course requires students to practice their skills in self and project management, as well as communication, digital literacy and citizenship, which is essential to the workplace.
