What have we been up to?

AWS Virtual Work Placement Week, 13-17 May 2024

Last week as our team hosts students who undertook their Information & Digital Technology Work Placement virtually with Amazon Web Services.

Over 500 VET students from more than160 schools and TAFE’s across NSW took part in this huge virtual work placement experience!😲😲

MWLP are hosted students at 2 locations for the week.

In our office we had students from Mount Annan HS, John Therry Catholic College, Elizabeth Macarthur HS, Elderslie HS and Ambarvale HS. 

Offsite we hosted students from LaSalle Catholic College Bankstown, Homebush Boys HS, Concord HS and De La Salle College Revesby at the new Western Sydney University campus in the heart of Bankstown.

This was such an amazing opportunity for the students to be able to connect with AWS staff who mentored them through the world of cloud computing, covering topics such as cyber security, web development, data analysis and artificial intelligence.
