The Client

Djerriwarrh Community & Education Services (Djerriwarrh) is a highly regarded not for profit charitable organisation, which has been delivering high quality education, training, employment and youth programs across multiple sites in the western suburbs of Melbourne since 1989. Djerriwarrh delivers a range of pre accredited and accredited foundation and entry employment level Vocational Education and Training (VET) certificates. 

Djerriwarrh went to market in 2020 for a new a Technology Services provider as they found their current provider was providing inadequate and reactive service. Their systems and end user experience had degraded to a point where it was having a significant impact on their business. 

They were also undergoing a process of ISO27001 certification and needed a trusted partner to help them with the technology and security aspects of this process.
