The Industry Experience Program
The Industry Experience Program assists students to develop employability skills and an understanding of the expectations within the role they are studying towards. This practical learning-based program allows an organisation to host a student for unpaid industry experience for up to 30 days over a designated period of time. It’s a great way to support emerging professionals and find like-minded, motivated and driven students.
Work Integrated Learning Program
Work Integrated Learning (WIL) is a compulsory component of a student’s course in selected disciplines. It provides a wide range of learning experiences undertaken by students to better prepare them for future employment. The work placement component allows students to work with a dedicated professional who can coach, mentor and supervise this important aspect of the student learning journey.
