We’re excited to share that today, SAP Australia and New Zealand was announced as an industry partner at the official opening of the Institute of Applied Technology (IAT) – Digital, at TAFE NSW Meadowbank.

A cohort of both education and technology partners have come together with the aim of launching NSW as the nation’s leading provider of digital skills, combining world-class facilities with an industry-driven education model.

As an industry partner, SAP is supporting the institute in co-designing and delivering specific courses in key disciplines such as data management, software development, and cloud computing.

Students of TAFE NSW and the IAT will have access to a number of free learning modules via OpenSAP, Student Zone and Learning Journey, and from mid-year, the first two SAP courses will be available at the IAT:

  • S/4 HANA Financial Accounting for SAP Consultants
  • S/4 HANA Management Accounting for SAP Consultants

Additional courses will be added as the IAT matures, and are specifically being designed to focus on areas of skills shortages.

Damien Bueno, President and Managing Director, SAP Australia and New Zealand said on the opening:

“We need more, and better, digital skills in Australia, but reaching the numbers and level of skill needed requires us to invest in new and different ways of finding and fostering talent.

“Which is why we’re really excited to partner with the Institute of Applied Technology (IAT) – Digital, at TAFE NSW Meadowbank. More than 800 students are due to be trained in SAP skills through the Institute over the next five years, which will bring new capabilities, value and experience to our customers and the broader SAP ecosystem.”
