Oracle is offering support to each state ACCE affiliate, and its members, by offering training programs to each state and territory where there is suffcient demand.
Oracle Academy's curriculum uses the latest version of Java available. This curriculum is designed to be used immediately by teachers when they return to the classroom with very minimal set up required.
At the conclusion of the training, teachers will have learnt the basics of Java programming and created either an animation or a game that state groups may use to showcase.
In each location that the training takes place, Oracle Academy will cover all lunch and tea breaks and well as all costs associated with training.
Oracle will not cover expenses associated with participants travel, accommodation nor replacement costs.
