I am a participant in the Victorian Government Digital Jobs Program, which is encouraging mid-career professionals to receive sponsored training in digital skills. These digital skills are then applied in a paid internship with a business that requires those skills.

I chose the Front-End Web Development course at General Assembly, because I have been on a career change journey for the past two years. I have a qualification in training and assessment and I aspire to become an Instructional Designer. Hence, learning to code made sense to me as a skill that would be useful for creating learning materials in my new path.
