SIGNAL ICT Grad School grows and develops Tech Professionals for NZ.

Tech is NZ's third largest export earner, and is a rapidly expanding, dynamic industry with a range of qualified people required, to both fill new roles, and to help develop the business, technical and design leaders of the future.

As an innovative disruptor, SIGNAL works in partnership with the local tech industry and established academic providers, to develop and deliver current, responsive professional development programmes, but we do things a little bit differently from the norm. 

It is not all just technical... SIGNAL recognises that professionals need a broad range of skills across process, technology, and people, and we incorporate these into all that we do.

For tech employers of people in tech roles we are your tech people performance partner.  Our learning and development services lets you concentrate on growing your business whilst we ensure you have the talent and capabilities within your team to deliver your vision.  

For those in tech roles, we can tailor a learning and development programme just for you, whether you are just starting out in your career, or are more senior.  

If you are looking to get into a tech role, our Shift programme provides an innovative studio-based curated learning experience which is individually focused on employment outcomes. Combining project-based learning and industry project experience along with the ability to specialise in your chosen industry area, this programme is flexible enough to cater for learners from a variety of backgrounds.

If you or your business is looking to develop and boost your capabilities, talk to us today.

Cutting edge, studio-based tech training

SIGNAL does things differently from traditional tertiary education. Gone are traditional lectures, in favour of studio-based projects, seminars, industry placements and projects, mentoring and work-based learning. We base our programmes across two locations (Christchurch and Dunedin), close to industry.

Tech training for all backgrounds

Our programmes are for all aspiring and current tech professionals – whether you are educating the next generation in our schools, wanting to transition from a non-tech background into an tech role, or hoping to develop your skills and capabilities while in an tech role.

Teaching the right industry skills

SIGNAL is not just about the technical – we value business skills including teamwork, communication and innovation highly. We believe tech professionals need a range of strengths to ensure the NZ tech industry flourishes. A mix of contributors from the SIGNAL Network – academics, current industry professionals and other subject experts – deliver our programmes.

Signal is about partnerships

We would love to work with you and your organisation to help develop your tech professionals – and see how they can contribute to SIGNAL programmes and New Zealand’s growing tech industry.
