Applications are open for Stepping Into Summer 2015/16

Are you a student with disability who wants to:

  • Gain paid work experience in a leading organisation?
  • Build a network of contacts?
  • Develop valuable skills and experience?

Stepping Into…TM is a paid internship program specifically designed for students with a disability, who want paid, hands-on work experience that is degree-relevant. We have been successfully assisting students to obtain paid internships since 2005.

To find out what opportunities are available over Summer 2015/16, visit the Australian Network on Disability website. More opportunities will be added as they become available. To keep up-to-date with what’s on offer, follow them on Facebook.

You must be in your penultimate or final year of a Bachelor or Postgraduate degree to participate in Stepping Into, and must be registered with Disability Services at your university, or provide relevant medical documentation with the application. For full details on eligibility requirements, please click here.

Placements will commence from November 2015 to January 2016, allowing you to complete the internship during the summer university break. Placements are for a minimum 152 hours (unless otherwise specified in the job description). These hours can be worked either full time or part time depending on your requirements for workplace adjustments.

If you are a first year student, or you are not in your penultimate or final year, you may be interested in a mentoring opportunity through PACE Mentoring. PACE gives students with disability the opportunity to develop skills and confidence in a workplace setting, which can assist in planning career goals, as well as aiding personal and professional development. The Spring program is due to commence in September, so apply now for opportunities with ANZ, IBM, Cummins South Pacfic and more!
