Want a tech qualification that will change your life?

Good news, South Australia. Your fees have been paid for.
Forte is working with the State Government to give 150 talented South Australians a leg up into one of the state’s most exciting industries.

You’ll receive top-quality training, hands-on project experience and help to find your first role in burgeoning fields like data analytics, software development, and cloud computing from some of the most trusted educators in the country.

We're looking for talented and committed students from diverse backgrounds who are eager to break into the industry of the future. These fields offer good salaries, long-term job security, and the skills of tomorrow – and training won't cost you a thing.
