How it works
Managing Digital Projects is a self-led and interactive course that teaches folks working in the public, and not-for-profit sectors everything they need to know to contribute to launching successful digital products and services.
Participants will learn sector-relevant information and have access to expert mentorship to ensure that rather than just learning theory and frameworks, they’re practising applying it in their context.
Learning from, and working with the Code for Australia Fellows has brought a dynamic perspective to Victoria Legal Aid, building our capacity to use design thinking, rapid prototyping and co-design.

How it's structured
Throughout the self-led course each participant will learn how to effectively run, and contribute to a digital project from start to finish.
Participants will complete six topic modules and engage in practical self-led learning which will include videos, templates, and other learning materials.
Those undertaking the course can work though a real project they're embarking on or about to embark on - any piece of work where people are the end users e.g. a tool to collect information from clients; a payment portal for fees or fines. Alternately, we can provide an example project to utilise throughout the course.
You can also select to access 6 x one hour sessions with one of our expert Mentors who will give provide feedback on the work, answer any burning questions, and give guidance through the process.
All participants will also have access to our Communities of Practice platform and dedicated Slack channel to connect with others.
