It was a big week for the ICT skills crisis last week. The Australian 
Public Service had a half day symposium "ICT Skills in the APS - 
buying in a sellers market" and released a tender for training ICT 
apprentices. The ACS launched its new "Computer Professional Program" 
with open source (Moodle ) based online training system (I suggested 
how the ACS could use Podcasting for it).

For my notes on these see:

* ICT Skills in the Australian Public Service 
* Podcasting for Education and Training 

ps: I suggested to the ATO they could solve their ICT skills crisis 
by advertising jobs on my web site, like the Defence Department, WA 
and Victorian governments already do.  ;-)
