Support From Our Partners

Following our press release letter we also would like to clarify our position in a simple to read, post it on Reddit/Facebook, response format.

Opening our student centre has always been and will always be aimed at one thing: students learning workplace skills.

To do so, Industry Placements Australia has two key measures in place for our internship placements.

  1. We are accredited and insured.
  2. Our partners give us the process used to train the interns which must be compliant to the Fair Work Act.

Addressing Point 1

We have a current insurance policy to cover all interns while on placement.

Addressing Point 2

Our partner at F2 has happily released their internship training material in support of our training program.

Their training regime for the interns 12 weeks is as follows (please note, some of the links will not resolve as they are to internal F2 documents):
