Ignite Indigenous Traineeship Program 2022

Western Sydney University is proud to introduce the Ignite Indigenous Traineeship Program. This program is delivered by the Office of the Deputy Vice Chancellor Indigenous Leadership (ODVCIL) and provides a vocational pathway for Indigenous participants to gain paid experience in university operations as business administration trainees. 

Participants are employed as professional staff members and will acquire a unique business skillset from a host School, Division or Institute within the university. The program offers a one-year fixed term of employment in combination with enrolment into a Certificate III in Business (Administration) traineeship. 

While employment following the traineeship is not guaranteed, prior to successful completion of the program, trainees will be provided with options to transition into ongoing employment and/or further study.

The Ignite Indigenous Traineeship Program is set to launch in early 2022 and more information on this program is soon to be released. We welcome all interested Indigenous people to apply for this valuable employment opportunity once released.

Let Western show you why we are the university that cares more because together we are unlimited.
