SIGNAL ICT Graduate School focuses on growing New Zealand’s IT industry – and on developing professionals to meet that growth.

With advances in technology showing no signs of slowing, SIGNAL has developed four programmes that cover a range of IT development needs.

Developed in partnership with industry, these programmes will be delivered through a variety of methods including studio-based projects, seminars, industry placements, mentoring and work-based learning. As well as producing highly-competent IT graduates with work-relevant skills, they will provide more effective pathways for graduates from IT education into employment. Our four keystone programmes are:

  • SHIFT – for graduates from non-IT backgrounds who want to move into an IT-focused career OR for recent graduates who want to enhance their qualification with IT skills to further their employment prospects
  • ACCELERATE – for recent tertiary-level IT grads looking to supercharge their skill set in a work-based learning programme
  • EDUCATE – for school teachers who want to develop their knowledge and skills to teach the fast-growing area of Digital Technologies
  • XTEND – for experienced IT professionals who wish to move into a leadership role or future-proof their business
