The I-PREP and LEAP programs support employers
The University of Tasmania is calling for businesses around Hobart and Launceston to open their doors to talented and enthusiastic international students studying at the University of Tasmania and TasTAFE, to offer workplace experiences.
The I-PREP program, supported by the Tasmanian Government, aims to give international students an opportunity to engage in and make a valuable contribution to a Tasmanian workplace.
The program educates international students in Australian workplace culture, communication skills and how to apply for a job. It is a competitive program with the best students then eligible to apply for an internship in a Tasmanian organisation to put their skills into practice. The internships are unpaid and students will be in the workplace for between 45-80 hours. For employers, it’s an opportunity to trial an international student close to graduation, many of who go on to gain employment in that firm or another local business.
LEAP (Learn, Experience, Actuate Potential) is an employer support initiative designed to assist organisations to engage more closely with the University of Tasmania and students. A range of engagement initiatives can be accessed including tours, expos, work experience/internships and graduate programs.
Support for targeted recruitment activities can also be arranged (fees may apply). For further information please email email@example.com.
