MYOB says the programme, dubbed I CAN with MYOB, has a focus on retraining mature jobseekers, return to work parents and people who have suffered disadvantage and difficulty gaining training or employment.
According to MYOB, the programme also aims to provide the digital skills to kick start a dynamic career in bookkeeping and ensure the students are not left behind by the digital economy.
The programme is being undertaken by a partnership involving MYOB, Infoxchange, and Monarch Institute, and is a book-keeping training course that provides a clear pathway into a new career, including industry-specific professional coaching.
“The I CAN with MYOB programme is a really exciting initiative as it opens the doors for people who may not have previously had the chance to pursue a career in this industry. We have people ranging from their mid-20s right through to their 60s, and from a range of cultural backgrounds.
“We want to ensure the next generation of bookkeepers is equipped with the knowledge and skills required to not only find employment upon completion of the course, but thrive in the fast-evolving accounting industry.”
