Cadetships for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Students
What does a cadetship involve?
A cadetship provides full-time undergraduate students with opportunities for:
- Paid work experience relevant to your studies with an industry or government employer (usually a twelve week work placement during the summer break at end of each year, at either a head office location in a capital city, or another location where the employer has core business operations)
- Study and textbook allowances throughout your studies during each academic year
- Career development advice, mentoring and support from your employer
- Skills development in your chosen field throughout your degree
- Career path and offer of employment when you successfully complete your cadetship program
Indigenous cadetship support
This Cadetship Project (NICP) is coordinated through the Department of Employment & Workplace Relations (DEEWR). NICP links Indigenous tertiary students with employers in cadetship arrangements involving full-time study and work placements. This Project provides opportunities for Indigenous Australians to gain qualifications for a range of jobs in the public and private sectors.
