DIT Aboriginal Internship

The DIT Aboriginal Internship Program provides another pathway towards employment for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people who may not be eligible to apply for other employment programs such as Traineeships due to their age, or Cadetships if they have no desire or are not eligible to undertake tertiary study.

The DIT Aboriginal Internship Program provides greater flexibility with respect to business/operational areas individuals may be placed and aims to provide employees with opportunity to develop their professional skills with on-the-job experience while simultaneously providing relevant vocational training towards a recognised qualification that corresponds to the discipline area they are placed.

An advantage of the DIT Aboriginal Internship Program is that it is tailored to individual and business requirements and may refer individuals directly from the Aboriginal Employment Register.
