Melbourne, September 10: The Australian Computer Society has been recognised in the 2014 Victorian International Education Awards, being awarded a Highly Commended in the Excellence in Innovation Partnerships category.
These awards promote the best practice of education providers, businesses and not-for-profit organisations in a range of areas including student experience, teaching and learning, research excellence and quality & innovation in support of internationalisation.
ACS Head of Education and Workforce Development Asheley Jones welcomed the recognition.
“The ACS has worked hard to develop an education programme which delivers for both students and the industry. We took a decision to approach education in a different way, looking at the concept of lifelong learning rather than just acquiring qualifications.”
“Our implementation of bespoke professional development and the MySFIA self assessment tool helps give our students and professionals an unfair advantage. We unapologetically support doing everything we can to build the best educated digital workforce in the world as we know this will be a key component of Australia’s economic future.”
