“Building on cutting edge work undertaken at Oxford University, new analysis by PwC shows that 44 per cent (5.1 million) of current Australian jobs are at high risk of being affected by computerisation and technology over the next 20 years.” A Smart Move – Future-proofing Australia’s workforce by growing skills in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM), Price Waterhouse Cooper.

It is through the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) department that Ashdale is able to deliver key foci of the STEM initiative both through the study of structure and function of digital technologies per se and their application in enriching students’ cross-curricular experiences.

All students in years 7 and 8 gain their initial experience in ICT through the STEM institute, the Specialist ICT program and the Digital Technology courses which provide both a firm foundation of skills and knowledge and a capacity for extension to allow students to pursue their interests through two major pathways in years 9 to 12. Students can elect to follow a digital design and communication oriented strand or a software design and computer science focused route. Such is the importance and appeal of the area that many students follow both, maximizing their opportunities for future careers where ICT capability is of paramount importance.
