The 1989-founded Kent Institute Australia (Kent) aims to train students for careers in business or information technology. At its campuses in Sydney and Melbourne, the institute aims to promote academic excellence in a free and open learning environment. By offering an engaging learning environment, the institute hopes to develop the next generation of business and IT leaders across many industries. Both higher education courses and vocational (VET) courses are offered by Kent Institute. Four specializations are available for the Bachelor of Business course under its Higher Education Courses: Marketing, Management, Information Systems, and Accounting. Additionally, a double specialization in management and marketing is an option.
Kent offers a variety of vocational courses, such as a Certificate in Accounting and Bookkeeping, a Certificate in Business, a Certificate in Marketing and Communication, a Diploma in Accounting, a Diploma in Marketing and Communication, a Diploma in Leadership and Management, a Diploma in Project Management, and an Advanced Diploma in Accounting, a Diploma in Marketing and Communication, a Diploma in Leadership and Management, and an Advanced Diploma in Programme Management. The Certificate IV in Web-Based Technologies, the Diploma of Website Development, the Diploma of Digital Media Technologies, and the Advanced Diploma of Information Technology are just a few of the vocational courses provided by Kent in information technology. At Kent, the focus is on helping students from all backgrounds gain access to quality and higher and vocational education. Students are also encouraged to engage in discussion and critical thinking to enable them to make confident, informed decisions about their career. Kent has helped around 10,000 local and international students gain the skills and education to help them succeed in their careers.
The use of Australian and international best practices in education for its programs and staff training is what gives Kent its success. In order to guarantee that its courses satisfy all the criteria of today's dynamic workplace, it has also established and maintained relationships with industry and professional institutes. The Careers Services portal at Kent, which supports students seeking for work and trains them for the application and interview processes, was just established. The portal offers a selection of educational programs and job search features. It assists students in developing their knowledge and skills for careers in industry. Students can use the portal's tools for self-development and career management as well as to build their resumes and cover letters, practice interviews, search for industry jobs, get advice from current employers, and more.
The Bachelor of Information Technology (BIT) at Kent is created to assist in addressing this anticipated industrial requirement. Kent also grants a Bachelor of Information degree with a Cyber Security concentration. This specialization was created to fulfill the growing demand for skilled ICT Security professionals within the industry. The Cyber Security Growth Centre (AustCyber) has found a serious lack of professional cyber security graduates, according to a recent case study published by the Australian Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, Meeting demand for cyber security competence (2018). In particular, it was predicted that Australian industry will require at least 11,000 more people over the following ten years merely to keep up with demand. As a result, cybersecurity has become a crucial and quickly expanding industry.
Students who want to increase their job options in information technology can take the Bachelor of Information Technology programme. It particularly appeals to aspiring ICT professionals because the knowledge acquired and skills practiced in individual and small team learning environments prepare graduates for roles in a business environment such as analyst programmer, web developer, database administrator, business analyst, software and applications programmer, systems analyst, and ICT security specialist.
