Community Collaboration

Kinross Wolaroi School Internship Program:

Our Internship Program is an initiative of The Regional Engagement Enterprise and is the lighthouse element of our contextualised approach towards education. This program sees students work within an occupation for around a half-day a week for 20 weeks on a specific project that benefits the individual, the company and the wider community.
A wide variety of industries have been represented in our program, from not for profit to agriculture, law, communications and banking. Having a range of experiences on offer allows students and mentors to find a perfect fit and develop meaningful relationships.

Internships are matched to student interests and skill sets but aim to develop and challenge their ideas about themselves and their abilities. After a pitch meeting or job interview with prospective mentors intern students sign a job contract. They learn the etiquette and rules around working for an employer in a real work setting.

Congratulations to the following 2020 Interns and thank you to all of our new collaborators.
