Throughout the ICT Ignite program, there are specific deadlines in the various stages of your journey as you work towards completing an employer project and receiving your stipend payment.
Stage expirations are time limits set within the program to ensure that stipends are available for learners who actively engage and work towards completing employer projects. Stage expirations are implemented for different stages of the program, each with its own timeframe and outcomes if they expire. Allowing any of these stages to expire could result in a strike per our three strike system. You are notified of the pending stage expiration date throughout your ICT Ignite journey to help ensure that you never miss a step.
Time until expiry
What happens if the stage expires?
Learner - invitation to join the ICT Ignite program
from when you receive your email invite
Your program invitation expires and you must reach out to the ICT Ignite team to gain access to the program. There is no guarantee that your space in the program will still be available if you miss the deadline to join.

joining the program -> first application to an employer project
from when you join the ICT Ignite portal
If you have entered the ICT Ignite program and not applied for employer projects you will receive a final reminder email at 10 days.
If our team doesn’t hear from you before 15 days, we reserve the right to remove you from the program.
We understand that it takes a bit of time to explore and find the right fit, and we want to ensure that you're set up for success to apply for employer projects. If you're unsure where to start, check out our help article to guide you through the process.
Project start -> end date
2 - 8 weeks
This is evaluated on a case-by-case basis by the ICT Ignite team.
If the project timeline is less than two weeks, it is likely it will be deemed incomplete and ineligible for a stipend payment.
If both the learner and employer collectively agree to change the end date, you must notify the ICT Ignite team (firstname.lastname@example.org) a minimum of 5 business days prior to the end date currently recorded on the platform.
