This form is for organisations across Ballarat, Bendigo, Geelong and
Latrobe Valley to express their interest in engaging talented university and
TAFE students with disability through the Connect50 project.
Connect50 is an internship
scheme in regional Victoria that matches talented university and TAFE students
with disability with paid roles in local businesses. It is a unique opportunity
for these businesses to connect with talented university and TAFE students with
disability and realise the benefits of a more diverse and inclusive workforce. For
students, it’s a chance to gain vital work experience during study.
Engaging with Connect50 is
simple. We’ll find talented students with disability and assess their
eligibility. We’ll manage student and workplace briefings, provide ongoing
support during the placement and assist with the feedback process once the
internships are complete.
Connect50 is a project
managed by the Australian Network on Disability (AND), which is a national,
member-based, for-purpose organisation that makes it easier for organisations
to welcome people with disability in all aspects of business. Since 2005, AND
has facilitated hundreds of internship opportunities for students with
disability across the Australian workforce.
To nominate yourself or a
colleague as a Connect50 supervisor, please complete the form below.
Please note: Connect50
internships are paid placements. No voluntary positions will be accepted.
