Programs & Tools

TECHNATION’s vision is to increase national competitiveness and economic growth by accelerating the adoption of emerging tech by SMEs across the economy.

We foster tech-enabled employment (AI, data, cybersecurity, and hybrid roles), resulting in a reduction in unemployment and underemployment across industry sectors.

Our programs and tools refine and accelerate the convergence of the evolving needs of employers with leading-edge skills identification and assessment, and guidance on gap-closing learning opportunities for prospective tech and tech-enabled workers.

Whether you’re a recent graduate, an IT professional, or an employer in any sector seeking staff with the required tech skills to help you protect and grow your company, we have a variety of programs and tools that will help you achieve your goals. This includes opportunities for students to gain the skills and capabilities they need to thrive in ICT-related work integrated learning, a work-placement initiative that helps bridge the gap for recent graduates, and initiatives that provide key insights into tech-enabled roles across the country including skills requirements, salary and experience levels.


The Advanced Digital and Professional Training (ADaPT) Program is designed to bring recent graduates closer to their futures in tech-enabled roles.
