Overview

Balance Internet has teamed up with some of the most influential and knowledgeable Australian and global technology companies to create a comprehensive marketplace so that all Australians can be connected with new digital skills.

The Skill Finder marketplace is click-ready and will enhance the skills and competence of the Australian workforce, equipping individuals with in-demand, immediately applicable digital micro-skills from leading technology companies.

Skill Finder was created after the Minister for Industry, Science, and Technology, The Hon. Karen Andrews, asked Australia’s technology sector to help with the nation’s post-COVID economic recovery. The idea for Skill Finder was born out of a hackathon that Balance Internet, hosted while in Melbourne lockdown. Balance Internet later collaborated with the broader technology sector, in particular Adobe and AWS to bring the idea to life.

The skill training and digital enablement opportunities are provided by a public-spirited collaboration of leading technology companies operating in the Australian market. The Skill Finder proof of concept (POC) site has been developed free-of-charge by Balance Internet. Adobe Magento Commerce, Adobe Analytics and AWS hosting services have also been provided for the POC at no fee.

The Skill Finder marketplace is powered by some of the most trusted and recognised organisations from across Australia and the world. Partners offering free courses on Skill Finder include; Adobe, Atlassian, AWS, Canva, Google, IBM, LinkedIn, Microsoft, MYOB, Salesforce, Twitter and Xero.

Hundreds of online courses and micro-skills are available on Skill Finder, spanning 12 categories and 144 sub-categories across Business Tools, Cloud Computing, Coding, Computer Basics, Customer Service, Data Analysis and Management, Design, Digital Marketing, Machine Learning and AI, Project Management, Security and Small-to-Medium Business.
