Cadets will receive on-the-job training, support and mentoring and will also complete an accredited Graduate Certificate in Infrastructure Engineering qualification.
The Graduate Certificate, combined with their international qualifications, will certify cadets as qualified engineers in Australia, making it easier to apply for engineering roles locally.
The Industry-first program aims to bridge the gap faced by new Australians in matching their international qualifications to Australian workforce requirements.
The paid cadetship will provide valuable local work experience and access to industry networks – addressing the barriers often faced by new Australians in accessing professional employment.
