ANU Indigenous Trainee Program

The ANU Indigenous Traineeship Program has been in operation since 2011.  In this time 25 trainees have been hosted at Colleges and Service Divisions across ANU.

Our trainees have achieved a 88% completion rate and several have gone on to further employment at ANU after gaining their qualification.

The new ANU Indigenous Traineeship Program will provide a more coordinated approach via an ANU-wide service agreement with the Australian Training Company (ATC).  All new trainees will be employed by ANU on fixed term agreements for the duration of their traineeships.

Benefits for trainees

  • Flexible learning options including the ability to change or add qualifications during the traineeship.
  • Undertake a range of work and gain wide exposure across the College or Service Division.
  • Regular support visits from Australian Training Company Account Manager and support personnel.

Benefits for ANU

  • Contribute to the growth of ANU career pathways for Indigenous professional staff. 
  • Provide learning and development opportunities for Indigenous trainees to gain a professional qualification.
