Tech for Non Tech

An interactive course that demystifies modern tech


How it works

Tech for Non Tech helps folks build their digital fluency by deepening their understanding of web development and learning how to work with delivery teams. You'll learn how to make well-informed and sustainable technical decisions. The classes are functional, flexible and tailored to your needs and are conducted through interactive and active learning.

We believe that digitally fluent teams are crucial in the making of technology that is accessible, sustainable and useful to all.

Workshop structure

Tech for Non Tech begins with our foundational content. The workshops are an interactive experience that enable active participation for lasting knowledge. Once participants have completed these, we deliver bespoke classes with custom content—informed by your goals for transformation and upcoming project work.

“Literally everyone I spoke to or emailed at Code for Australia was a delight to work with. It felt like a dream collaboration from start to finish. I have no hesitation in recommending Tech for Non Tech to other organisations - it was facilitated strongly and the content valuable.”

We're based in Melbourne, on the traditional lands of the Woiwurrung and Boon Wurrung peoples of the Kulin nation. We acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded and pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging across Australia.

As an organisation we benefit from the rich history of contributions that Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people have made to the world.
