Group of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander trainees

The Traineeship Program, established in April 2008, reinforces the University's aim to create employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.

The program offers Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people traineeships at the University on a 12 and 24 month basis.

The trainees work in various areas of the University, including Schools, professional units, research institutes and centres, and the Library.

The trainees attend TAFE NSW one day a week and are also encouraged to take part in professional development programs.

The Traineeship Program aims to:

  • Address the key barriers to the employment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
  • Create employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
  • Provides pathways to employment ongoing opportunities, rotations and exchanges across the University.
  • Provide access to professional development opportunities for trainees.
  • Embed cultural intelligence and awareness in the workplace into all the participating departments.
