ACS’s recent Digital Pulse 2023 report highlights the critical IT skills shortage facing Australia. By making Lumify Group’s products and services more widely available to its members, ACS hopes to improve access to much needed upskilling and reskilling tools. Lumify resources will be available through the ACS member portal at a discounted rate to a new generation of IT talent, such as students, school leavers, career changers and migrants needing recognition of their qualification. This collaboration seeks to fill the immediate gap in skilled IT professionals but also empower IT talent at all levels, from C-suite executives to newcomers, to navigate the challenges posed by increasing cybersecurity threats and the speed and depth of the AI technology revolution.

The Lumify team recognises the value of ACS membership, especially for career starters and career changers. Lumify is excited to include free ACS membership for all students studying Nationally Accredited courses through Lumify Learn, providing students with extra support and industry links to fast track their career into IT.

Jon Lang, CEO of Lumify Group, says,

“Our commitment to cultivating future tech capabilities aligns perfectly with ACS’s mission of nurturing a thriving tech ecosystem. With ACS’s members spanning across every industry relying on IT, including business, government, and education, we have a unique opportunity to foster a best-in-class generation of IT professionals who will drive innovation and progress in their respective industries and throughout Australia.”

ACS CEO, Josh Griggs, says,

“ACS is thrilled to partner with Lumify to introduce new learning and development opportunities for ACS members. The ACS Digital Pulse report 2023 highlights the necessity for 1.3 million additional skills by 2030, and collaborations like this are instrumental in closing the gap.”

Lang added, “Together, Lumify Group and ACS are poised to redefine the standards of tech professional development and education, empowering individuals to realise their full potential and contribute meaningfully to Australia’s tech-driven economy.”

The partnership follows a strong period of growth for Lumify Group, including the acquisition of City Desktop and the launch of Lumify Learn and Lumify Learn’s Academic Accelerator.
