UTS: New partnership to train the Australian Defence Force

The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) and defence support services provider Sayres will combine their respective industry and academia expertise in support of the Australian Defence Force and government sector.

Leveraging their respective wealth of knowledge in defence training and tertiary education, the new partnership between UTS and Sayres will deliver new teaching and learning opportunities targeting the immediate skills requirements of the Australian Defence Force and government sector.

This collaboration will result in co-designed, non-accredited and nationally accredited courses that are tailored to the specific and immediate requirements of the Defence and government sector. The training courses will span across the entire spectrum of skills requirements and will assist staff in gaining the relevant skills needed for career development and progression.

UTS Pro-Vice Chancellor (Enterprise Learning) Mark Evans said UTS was “delighted to be partnering with Sayres to empower current Defence personnel to gain the skills and training relevant to prepare them for their constantly evolving professional landscape.

“Sayres’ deep understanding of Defence contexts combined with UTS’s subject matter expertise means that we bring complementary capabilities to solve the training needs within Defence.”

Sayres Australia Chief Executive Officer Craig Powell said that he was “excited to be partnering with UTS for the delivery of high-end technical training to the defence and government sectors, particularly in the highly sought after and rapidly developing cyber and artificial intelligence domains.

“This partnership brings a synergy of Sayres’ extensive defence training experience with UTS’ tertiary education systems to provide an end-to-end training solution in key capabilities for Defence and government.”

UTS and Sayres look forward to working together to ensure that Australia’s Defence Forces and government sector staff are well equipped to stay relevant in the current ever-changing, technologically focused world.
