Are you a student with disability currently studying at university? If so, you might be interested in our Stepping Into Internship program.

Every year we find university students with disability who are in their second last or final year and bring them together with employers who are seeking interns in a variety of different sectors.

Everyone’s a winner

If you meet the employer’s job description and are successful in your application, they’ll host you as a paid intern either during your winter or summer semester break. You’ll gain practical experience and gain confidence in the workplace, which will give you an advantage stepping into your career once you graduate.

You’ll do a minimum of 152 hours, either as a four-week full-time block or flexibly across a longer period.  Working at the organisation’s head office or branch locations to give you a chance to experience a range of tasks and project challenges.
